Genealogy for Rhode Island Armenians
There is an AHARI committee devoted to genealogy information. In the past few years genealogy resources have exploded and become much more accessible for the Armenian Community. Information that was hidden in attics, books, basement and memoirs is being translated and digitized on a worldwide basis. Organizations such as Houshamadyan, the Armenian Immigration Project, the Near East Relief and the Armenian Genealogy Group on Facebook are working on compiling resources that are available and searchable online.
The AHARI committee has sources not previously accessible easily. We have compiled requiem and cemetery lists; these are invaluable for family names and dates. We are keeping track of obituaries of R.I. Armenians – again invaluable for names, dates, place of birth, where buried and so on. We have Mr. William Brown’s database of R.I. Armenians 1935-1940; he has brought together information from the above sources into one set of notebooks.
