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.
