The Rhode Island, Vital Extracts, Church Records, 1636-1850 are a collection of vital records, for Rhode Island, taken from records kept by the churches. They include birth, marriage, death, and other records. We are capturing a lot of information so you will want to read over all of the fields and field helps before working on an image set. (Just keep tabbing, eventually you will reach the end.) The records are typed so they are easy to read and follow. If you have questions about this project please post them on the Discussion page or this message board post.
And the New York, New York, Quarterly Abstracts of Seamen’s Protection Certificates, 1815-1869 are a collection of lists of Seamen Certificates. These records are handwritten but are generally easy to read. If you have questions as you work through image sets for this project please post them on the Discussion page or this message board post.
PS Thank you to all of the contributors who are testing these projects!
