Rhode Island Genealogical Society


Rhode Island Genealogical Society pursues an active program of publishing source material for the study of Rhode Island families, such as diaries, cemetery transcriptions, compiled genealogies, and transcriptions of original papers. We are proud to offer the books published by RIGS and classic sources by society members in the RIGS Online Store.
Our quarterly journal, Rhode Island Roots, features many Rhode Island records, such as cemetery and tax lists, General Assembly petitions, civil and military records, and genealogical articles -- all focusing on Rhode Island families. Other features include articles about Rhode Islanders in other state census records, queries and our list of RI research volunteers.
We also publish a newsletter for our members with articles about local Rhode Island history and genealogy, as well as providing information regarding upcoming events.
