If what Dan Nakaso said is true, then why are 3-year-olds and foreign-born children reported in the newspapers as being newborns born in Hawaii, which involves reporting the WRONG BIRTHDATE for a child? Even in the case of an adoption the HDOH would not alter the birthdate of a child, so how would this phenomenon happen from the HDOH?
When Hawaii was being considered for statehood, there was a minimum population requirement (600K, as I recall).
Hawaii fell short of that total. But, in order, to create more population they passed what was called Territorial Law #57
It authorized the DOH to accept as Hawaiian-born citizens children who were actually born elsewhere.
This law was still in effect in 1961, after Hawaii became a state.
Apologies. You already knew all of that.
I don't believe there are any foreign-born children listed. Which specific names do you think belong to foreign-born children?
