Cemeteries master name database index online for Rhode Island - The Rhode Island Historical
Cemeteries Transcription Project was begun by genealogists in 1990 with the
goal of entering all known transcriptions of cemeteries in RI into a database
(phase 1), then sending volunteers into the field with a printout to see which
stones were still there and whether they were correctly transcribed (phase 2). The
Association for Gravestone Studies format is used. The cemeteries and the
listings are primarily 1647-1900.

Genealogical Research in Rhode Island - by Maureen A. Taylor
“Beginning as an unpromising collection of outcasts, malcontents, squatters, and dissenters, followed by a century and a half of internal dissention and external hostility, Rhode Island emerged as a special place.” Reconstructing the role an ancestor played in this transformation can be an equally special experience.

Genealogies of Rhode Island families from Rhode Island periodicals—
Book is part of the Pomona City Library genealogical collection
Genealogy Shelf—R 929.3745 GEN v.1 & v.2
This compilation of family history articles from Rhode Island periodicals is unique in several respects. In the first place it ties together hundreds of articles devoted exclusively to Rhode Island genealogy. Second, it derives from publications that are completely out of the reach of the average researcher and almost entirely unknown, even to the professional. Third, it embodies the work of the most respected names in Rhode Island genealogy, among them James Arnold, John Austin, William W. Chapin, G. Andrews Moriarty, Sidney S. Rider, and Henry E. Turner. Finally, it contains the most complete register of arms of Rhode Island families ever published, featuring, in particular, the famous "Gore Roll of Arms." In no other work can the genealogist find such a comprehensive body of literature on Rhode Island families, not even in Austin's classic Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island.
Following is a list of the families mentioned in the table of contents to the main body of the work: Adams, Allen, Arnold, Audley, Austin, Babcock, Bailey, Baker, Barker, Bartlett, Billings, Borden, Boss, Bowen, Braman, Bull, Burrill, Butler, Carpenter, Carr, Carter, Case, Chapman, Checkley, Clarke, Coddington, Coggeshall, Cole, Cook, Cornell, Cozzens, Cranston, Davis, Dexter, Dorr, Dyre, Ellery, Eyres, Fenner, Foster, Gardiner, Gilliam, Gorton, Greene, Grinnell, Haszard, Holden, Hopkins, Howard, Hoyle, Hubbard, Hutchinson, Jackson, Jenks/Jenckes, Jenkins, Langford, Langley, Langworthy, Latham, Lawton, Long, Mason, Maylem, Melville, Mew, Mott, Olney, Palmer, Peck, Percy/Perce/Pearcy/Pearce, Pemberton, Perry, Place-Knight, Potter, Power, Ray, Redwood, Rhodes, Richmond, Robert-Rodman, Saffin, Sanford, Sayles, Sherman, Slack, Smith, Stanton, Stewart, Taylor, Tillinghast, Torrey, Tripp, Uncas, Vars, Vernon, Viall, Walker, Wanton, Waterman, Weeden, Whaley, Whipple, Whiteman/Wightman, Wilcox, Williams, Wilson, Wright, and Yates. Hundreds of additional families, it should be emphasized, figure into the extensive Appendix following at the back of the second volume.
