Today we’ve added one new volume to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900, from St. Anthony of Padua in Cohasset.  This parish was established in 1886, as an offshoot from the Church in Hingham and Weymouth.  The records may also be closely linked with the Church of the Nativity in Scituate, which became a mission of this parish.  Many of the parishioners were immigrants of Portuguese descent.  The new volume is called St. Anthony of Padua (Cohasset) Baptisms, 1886-1900.  This update adds over 1,200 new records and over 4,600 new names to search.
