Today we’re announcing two new volumes in Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900, from parishes in Medfield and Middleborough.

St. Edward the Confessor in Medfield began as a mission from Sacred Heart in Natick.  It was named for St. Edward the Confessor, a Medieval king of England who ruled in the 1000s.

Sacred Heart in Middleborough split off from St. Thomas the Aquinas in Bridgewater.  The cornerstone of the church was laid in 1880.

This was a small update–it adds 154 new images to browse.

We’d like to thank volunteer Francis Alix for his help making this update possible.

The new volumes are:

Sacred Heart (Middleborough) Baptisms, First Communions, and Confirmations, 1885-1900

St. Edward the Confessor (Medfield) Baptisms, 1890-1900
