Your Rhode Island Genealogy
"Clues from the News!"
This special section of The
Olden Times features old newspaper articles from or about Rhode
Island and Rhode Island families.
You'll find old news
articles, obituaries, birth & marriage announcements, ads and more. See
the links at the top of this page to go to the Index of Names, to search
this site or to take a look at the site map.
Each of these
was scanned from an original issue of an old newspaper in my personal
collection. They appear in the order in which they were added to this
website. Be sure to check for archived
stories, since I move them from this
page to the Archives periodically.
of Names is always your best bet for finding a specific name!
