Today we’re announcing six new volumes in Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from St. Thomas Aquinas in Jamaica Plain. As the population of Jamaica Plain grew, St. Thomas Aquinas was created out of St. Joseph’s parish in Roxbury. Mass was held for the first time here in 1869. Jamaica Plain is currently a neighborhood of Boston. When the parish began, Jamaica Plain was still part of West Roxbury, which did not become part of the city of Boston until 1874. This update adds over 18,300 new records and 58,000 new names. We’d like to thank all of our volunteers who have helped make this update possible, including Kayla Hinrichsen, Meredith Madyda, and Sara Calautti. The new volumes are listed below:
St. Thomas Aquinas (Jamaica Plain) Baptisms and Confirmations, 1869-1884

St. Thomas Aquinas (Jamaica Plain) Baptisms, 1893-1900
