Archdiocese of Boston: new browsable records from Foxborough and Watertown

Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Watertown, MA, Fall 2018

Today we’ve added seven new volumes to Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from St. Mary (Foxborough) and St. Patrick (Watertown).

Catholics worshiped in Foxborough as early as 1857, but the congregation saw two different church fires by 1877 which may account for why these records do not begin until 1878.

Catholics in Watertown initially were part of a collaborative of Catholics who went to Waltham for Mass.  In 1848 St. Patrick’s Church in Watertown was completed.

We’d like to thank the following scanners for their help with this project: Eileen McCarthy, Francis Alix, Angela Napolitano, and John Phlo.
