This entry was posted by Jim Sanders on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 at

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Rhode Island. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Rhode Island. If you don’t have any connections to Rhode Island, find a Rhode Island resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 3/31/2013 – 4/6/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
