At this website you can find records of Palapala Sila Nui and Palapala Hooko.
The site contains the number, name, district, ahupuaa, and the ili. There’s also a cost to order the documents but it may be a little cheaper to order from the Bureau of conveyances (occupied).
Sometimes you’ll know of an ancestor who maybe lived on Kauai but when you look up their name there will be the same name but on another island. They may or may not be the same person that’s why you have to order the document with the testimonials to get an idea if that is in fact your ancestor or not.
Also if you know where an ancestor came from and you type it in, like say you know the Ahupuaa but it shows up no results, try typing it in the search for text box.
Usually if there is a Royal Patent there’s also an LCAw (Certificate of Title is the real term) number as well.
If you want to download the Mahele Indices click on here —> Ko Hawaii Pae Aina —>there on the left sidebar there will be a button. Click that and download, it takes a real good while, save it to you desktop or a USB or a disc. It’ll come up much faster after you download it. I use this book extensively.
I’m not sure but I’ll check today if TMK discs are also available for purchase. Those are real handy too!
