Now searchable: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin (Lawrence)

Today we’ve added one new volume to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin (Lawrence) Births, Marriages, and Confirmations, 1887-1900.  This parish served the German community in Lawrence.  Prior to 1887, German Catholics in Lawrence only rarely had access to a priest who spoke their own language.  In 1887, Father Michael Sagg arrived in Lawrence to help them start their own congregation.  This update adds over 1,300 new names and more than 300 records to search.
