Naturalization Before 1906
Naturalization records for Hawaii are available from 1844 to 1894 at the State Archives. In addition, there are denization records (1846-1898) and special rights of citizenship (1894-1895). Indexes are available. Oaths of loyalty were required under the Republic of Hawaii (1894-1895) and are in the Archives.
The Family History Library has microfilm copies of Letters of Denization. These are records granting Hawaiian citizenship during Hawaii's royal era.
The Supreme Court also issued Naturalization Records, 1874-1904. These are located at the Hawaii State Archives for the years 1874 to 1904 and include petitions for 1900 and 1904. They are partially indexed. No naturalizations were issued from 1895 to 1900. All persons who were citizens of the Republic of Hawaii on August 12, 1898 were declared citizens of the United States.
Naturalization After 1906
BCIS naturalization certificate files (C-Files) include a duplicate copy of all naturalization records after September 26, 1906. C-Files include all US naturalizations from all States and Territories, and from all courts (Federal, State, and local). C-Files contain a copy of the Declaration of Intention to become a US Citizen (to 1952), Petition for Naturalization, and Certificate of Naturalization.
Declarations filed after Sept 27, 1906, were only good for 7 years. If the immigrant did not petition within the 7 years, the declaration expired and the immigrant had to start over again from the beginning.
Most C-Files from 1906 to 1956 are on microfilm, with the remainder in paper form, and BCIS has an index to those that have been filmed. They are available with a Freedom of Information/Privacy Act request to BCIS Headquarters in Washington, D.C. For naturalization records after 1956, Freedom of Information requests must be sent to the appropriate BCIS District Office
