The Rhode  Island Office of Vital Records is the responsible agency for registration and filing of vital records of the 39 cities and towns in Rhode Island.  The office holds birth records 1899 to present, death records 1949 to present and marriage records 1899 to present. Rhode Island vital records are confidential, meaning only those individuals who have a "direct and tangible interest" in the records may have access.  It should be noted, vital records will be received more quickly from the town clerk or state archives than from the RI Office of Vital Records.
