The names listed on this website are just names without the stories. And the names listed on the website are only a fraction of those people from Hawaii who served in “the Great War.” You can help the effort by volunteering your times and energy to tell the stories of our World War I history.

To help you in your research, here are some of our favorite resources for World War I history.

More World War I service records are at the  Hawaii State Archives.

Hawaii in the World War. Kuykendall, Ralph Simpson, 1885-1963. This is the Historical Commission of the Territory of Hawaii account of activities during World War I digitized by the University of Michigan.

The Bob Krauss Research Index at the University of Hawaii provides a great index of topics covered in English language newspapers in Hawaii from 1840 to 1944.

Chronicling America, a digitization project of the Library of Congress, includes newspapers from Hawaii up to 1922.

The Hawaii GenWeb project is another great source of family information.

Check out a search of records at Fold3.com.
