I think its good..but it probably wont do us any good.
Looks to me like it says what we already knew, if we kept up with this. Anyone could have given the information on a child, to get a certificate of live birth. This does NOT mean the child was born there. It only means the chid was born....somewhere.

We suspected that a similar law(s) (to the current 1982 statue) was on the books in 1961...but now we have the actual proof in the form of the actual law. Furthermore, the HI Territorial Law of 57 was even more "generous" than the one from 1982!
The naysayers, OBOTS, kool-aid drinkers (etc) could always refute the claim that HI had laws that allowed foreigners to apply for HI birth certificates...because we didn't have the proof such a law really did exist during 1961. Now we can refute them!
It's really a big discovery.
