Rhode Island Death Records

Death is never an easy topic and quite often it is a sensitive one. When it comes to genealogical researchers, death records are one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Death certificates can greatly help in the making of a family tree as it provides names, dates, locations and possible information on additional relatives. There are different laws that will govern your search for death records. In Rhode Island, death records from the last 50 years are kept by the Office of Vital Records. Older Rhode Island death records may be available as well, but they are kept on the county level as well as by the Rhode Island State Archives. These older records vary in coverage but may reach back to the 17th century. Many investigators realize that the information superhighway of the internet contains many record-finding-websites dedicated to this form of information expedition. Not only do you save time and money as you are not required to travel to various institutes all over the state, the search method itself is greatly expedited.
