Mission & Goals

The purpose of this project is to coordinate all Hawaii-related projects and resources and combine that information into one place.

Our goal is to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of Hawaii.


The following table provides links to space pages for each county in Hawaii. If you would like to be a member of a county, send the project leader a private message, and you will be added to the trusted list. Currently, all counties need team leaders! County Categories can be found here: Category:Hawaii

Hawaiʻi Honolulu Kalawao Kauai Maui

Task List


  1. Add Hawaii-related profiles, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. See the Hawaii State Maintenance Category "Needs" categories
    1. Needs GEDCOM Cleanup If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
    2. Needs Biography: Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
    3. Needs Profiles Created: Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
    4. Needs More Records: Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
      1. Unsourced Profiles
      2. Needs Birth Record
      3. Needs Marriage Record
      4. Needs Death Record
  3. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Hawaii. See the Homesteaders Project
  4. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Hawaii state tribes.

  2. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Hawaii, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
