What does the instrument created date mean in Grantor and Grantee Indexes?

+1 vote
In the Hawaii Grantor and Grantee Indexes, there is an instrument created date and a filed date. They are usually close in time but can also be months apart.

Does instrument created mean when the title was signed over (and presumbaly witnessed)? These are primarily land transfers.

And where would you find records for business concerns and commercial property changing hands?

Thanks those were great. I should have known Ulukau is the go to for just about everything historical in Hawaii.

search term I used to locate the Hawaii part was <instrument, grantor, grantee, index, Hawaii> -- without the term 'Hawaii' it will turn up the general information
