Hawaii Cemetery Records
One lesser-known aspect of Hawaii's history is its extensive cemetery records. Because of Hawaii's unique geography and history, with diverse cultural and religious traditions coexisting on the islands, the cemeteries of Hawaii hold a wealth of information about the people who have lived and died there over the centuries. Many of these cemeteries are still in use today, serving as important sites for local communities to remember and honor their ancestors and loved ones.
The most notable cemetery in Hawaii is the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (also known as the Punchbowl Cemetery), located in Honolulu on the island of O'ahu. This cemetery is the final resting place of many military veterans from Hawaii and around the country, including those who served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
Hawaii is also home to many smaller, community-based burial grounds that hold important historical and cultural significance. These include traditional Hawaiian burial sites, such as heiau (sacred temples) and iwi kūpuna (ancestral bones), as well as Christian and Buddhist cemeteries that reflect the diverse religious traditions that have shaped Hawaii's cultural landscape.
Cemetery records published here were acquired from Hawaii cemeteries, churches, municipalities, associations and genealogists specifically for family history and local history research.
