We are pleased to host Andrew Smith from the Rhode Island Supreme Court Judical Records Center, in connection with EGHPS’ September Exhibit on Kent County Justice. What are the oldest records of the Kent County Courthouse?  What can we learn from the written record of what remains from the 1600s and 1700s and how early court matters were handled? How does one begin research on these kinds of records and what can be found?  Come ready with your questions as this interactive session is here to inspire hands on local history practitioners!
