      I've not looked that early but recently did get 2 divorces from the 1940's which I'd have thought, given all the privacy BS (don't get me started on what an illusion "privacy" is these days) I'd have thought these would have been near on impossible to lay hands on especially since I'd have not been able to get the marriage certs for either of these marriages since they were more recent than 100 yrs ago.

      Someone here mentioned getting a divorce from Family Court & what it cost which was quite a bit more than what I paid but I found that the only need I had for speaking with the Family Court clerks was to get the case #/specific dates.

      The divorce records are at the Supreme Judicial Court Archives out in Pawtucket, RI. when going in person, they need 24 hrs to get the record retrieved from their off site storage & then you or someone else who can do it for you, goes in with a bag of quarters or wad of $1 for the change machine, they give you the file, you bop over to one of 2 copy machines abt. a dozen feet opposite the counter where you asked for the file & start copying away, a quarter a page.

      As to whether you can also get copies made & mailed to you....I'd think so & cost... I don't know. I was able to make the trip to Pawtucket & copy the records myself so I never bothered to ask about the things someone unable to go in person would want to know. A phone call to Pawt. should be able to get those answers tough.

      Linda

      Hello listersHow is everyone? Has anyone gone after divorce records in Rhode Island and been successful around the timeframe of 1900-1920? Just curious what the experience was like. Thank you. Nancy-Jo Nunez
