Archdiocese of Boston: St. Peter (Lowell) now searchable

St. Peter (Lowell) from One Hundred Years of Progress, page 328

Today we’ve added 9 new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from St. Peter in Lowell.  This update adds 41,579 records and 172,137 names to our database.  St. Peter (Lowell) was the second Catholic church in Lowell.  In One Hundred Years of Progress, James Sullivan relates how to establishment of this congregation was contentious, as some parishioners who lived far from St. Patrick’s (the original parish) wanted a geographically convenient church, while others would have preferred not to split the church.  The first Mass was held in 1842, and from then the parish continued to grow.  We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this update possible.  The new volumes are listed below:

St. Peter (Lowell) Baptisms, 1841-1865
