Rhode Island's first newspaper was published in 1732. The Rhode Island Historical Society has copies of virtually all newspapers published in the state. They have some newspaper indexes. The Family History Library has not acquired copies of Rhode Island newspapers.

Marriage and death notices for 1758 to 1833 from several major Rhode Island newspapers have been published in volumes 12 to 21 of James N. Arnold, Vital Records of Rhode Island 1636-1850. There are surname indexes in most of the volumes.

For additional indexes, see A Guide to Newspaper Indexes in New England ([Holden, Massachusetts]: New England Library Association, 1978; Family History Library book 974 B32n; fiche 6051391).
