We’ve added three new volumes from St. George in Framingham to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900.  In One Hundred Years of Progress, James S. Sullivan describes the mills that arose in Framingham, drawing immigrants (particularly Catholics) from other countries.  He says, “in no place did they receive a heartier welcome than in Framingham…it should not be surprising that the little hamlet Saxonville [where St. George is located] should take such a prominent part in the early days of Catholicity in New England. (p.778)”  This latest addition includes over 4,000 new records and over 18,000 new names.  The new volumes are:

St. George (Framingham) Baptisms, 1878-1900

St. George (Framingham) Baptisms and Marriages, 1848-1859

St. George (Framingham) Marriages, 1894-1900

Interior, St. George From One Hundred Years of Progress by James S. Sullivan (1895) p.778
