Finding Baptism, Marriage or Burial Records

In the Episcopal Church each congregation serves as the primary record-keeper of its baptisms, confirmations, marriages and burials. If you are looking for any of these records, please inquire first to the church where the sacrament was performed.

Parish and diocesan records from more than 30 years ago are stored in the Special Collections Department of the University of Rhode Island Library. For more information about the URI Special Collections Librarian, call them at 401-874-4632.
