US Births, Marriages and Deaths
« on: Thursday 09 December 04 09:20 GMT (UK) »
I am searching for relatives in the US (Rhode Island). Is there  a  US site I can check  births marriages and deaths such as free bmd or 1837 online?  I am searching the period 1900-1910.

Perhaps, Census records might be a place to start. I believe someone has posted a US Census look-up offer on the Emigrants to US board. If you post a query there
with names, ages,location (if you know it) that might give you names of children born in the US and addresses that may help in finding BMDs. For BMD records, you would have to contact the state record
office and a search might be quite expensive, if you don't have exact details about the people you are trying to find. Your best bet is probably a subscription to Ancestry, they have R.I. vital records. You might try asking about that on the Emigrants to US board. 
 
Good luck,

Thanks I'll try to get someone to  do the search for me. Someone has found an apparent  match on the  1910 US census for me.

Hello Louisa

Thank you for your kind offer.  I am looking for the marriage of Nancy Vickers born 1880 in Blackburn, Lancs daughter of Thomas Vickers.  She emigrated  alone to Rhode Island in 1903 where she married and had at least one daughter.  That is about all we know.
I hope this is enought to go on.
Thank you so much

Hello Val;
I'm sorry but I can't find any marriage information for you and the only Nancy Vickers I can find in the 1910 census were born in the US, so she might have married prior to that.

Val,
Still can't find any marriage record, but I did find this.  Maybe you already have it but thought I would pass it on anyway.  This is from Ellisisland.org
This is the passenger record, but when I attempt to look at the original manifest and enlarge the record, the correct record is not displayed.

 First Name: Nancy
Last Name: Vickers
Ethnicity: English
Last Place of Residence: Blackburn
Date of Arrival: October 28, 1902
Age at Arrival:  23y    Gender:  F    Marital Status:  S   
Ship of Travel: Saxonia
Port of Departure: Liverpool
Manifest Line Number: 0029
