Searchable Archdiocese of Boston Sacramental Records

Today we are launching Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, 1789-1900!  Thanks to the wonderful work of our volunteers, this database will make searchable the sacramental records we are digitizing in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Boston.

Upon launching, this database includes

14,347 Records

32,185 Names

and the following volumes:

Immaculate Conception (Boston) Baptisms, 1865-1898 and Marriages, 1870-1900

Immaculate Conception (Boston) Baptisms, 1898-1900

Immaculate Conception (Boston) Confirmations, 1860-1900

Immaculate Conception (Boston) Marriages, 1870-1900

Providence, RI, 1828-1830 (Mission)

St. Cecilia (Boston) Baptisms, 1889-1900

St. Cecilia (Boston) Marriages, 1888-1900

St. John, New Brunswick, 1816-1819 (Mission)

To search this database, on our advanced search page, choose Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, 1789-1900 in the drop-down database menu.  Make sure you do not choose Massachusetts: (Image Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, 1789-1900, the free unindexed companion to this new collection.

First names, last names, confirmation names, parents’ names, spouse’s names, witnesses’ names, record type, location, and date are all indexed for this collection.  Latin names have been anglicized where possible.

We are continuing to add to this collection; keep watching Database News for updates!
