Rhode Island Vital Records 1636-1850 Vol. 7-12

(Updated Databases) Permanent link

In 1891, James N. Arnold began publishing a series of vital records books for the towns of Rhode Island.

This update to the re-indexing of our original 2002 database adds records from Volumes 7-12. This database now contains more than 340,000 records. These records are indexed by name, date, location, and event type. Names of parents and spouses have also been indexed, when available.

All 21 volumes are available for viewing at the NEHGS Research Library, call number F78.A75. Additional volumes will be added to this online collection throughout the year.

Other Rhode Island databases available through our digital collections include Rhode Island Roots; Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries Database Index; and Members of the Artillery Company of Newport, Rhode Island.
