Today we’ve added twelve new volumes to Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from three parishes in Somerville and Lynn.  Sacred Heart (Lynn) was founded as Lynn’s population grew, becoming a more convenient location for the parishioners in West Lynn.  This parish separated from St. Mary (Lynn) in 1894.  St. Jean Baptiste (Lynn) was established in 1886 by Lynn’s French Canadian population.  St. Ann (Somerville) was established in 1881 in the Winter Hill neighborhood.  This update adds over 1,400 new images to browse.  If you need help navigating this collection, be sure to watch our how-to video.  We’d like to thank the following volunteers for their help with this update: Ross and Linda Weaver, Maoz Bizán, Angela Napolitano, and Eileen McCarthy.  The new volumes are listed below:
