PROVIDENCE – Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis will officially unveil the new State Archives Online Catalog during a Rhode Island College event on Oct. 17.

The R.I. Office of Secretary of State preserves Rhode Island’s historical public records, which are also made available for research, which date from 1638 to the present. The reception area of the State Archives office, located at 337 Westminster St., in Providence also features exhibits that are free and open to the public during normal business hours.

Included among the archives are images of original letters from Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and a request by a Rhode Island vehicle owner for a “low license plate number” from 1904. To view the catalog, visit www.sos.ri.gov and select the “State Archives” tab on the left. •
