The Rhode Island Supreme Court Judicial Records Center (JRC) serves as the central repository for the Rhode Island Judiciary's semi-active, inactive, and archival court records. Current records that are still necessary for the daily operations of the courts remain stored at the Clerk's Office of the respective court. The JRC offers reference services to the courts, the bar, and to members of the public who wish to do research in these public records.
Researchers interested in using the archival records (those dating from 1671 to 1900 and naturalization records) should click on the Research in the Archives link. Those interested in more recent records should view our Policies and Procedures link.
