Archdiocese of Boston: New searchable records from Cambridge and Medford

Today we’ve added four new volumes to
Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from Sacred Heart of Jesus in Cambridge and St. Joseph in Medford. This update adds 5,741 records and 24,532 names to search.

Sacred Heart of Jesus is located in East Cambridge. While we have already released most of this parish as part of this collection, these two volumes were later located and scanned.

In 1883 St. Joseph (Medford) became its own independent parish, previously being part of the church in Malden.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this parish available on our site.  The new volumes are listed below:

Sacred Heart of Jesus (Cambridge) Baptisms 1899-1900
Sacred Heart of Jesus (Cambridge) Marriages, 1897-1900

St. Joseph (Medford) Baptisms, 1883-1900
St. Joseph (Medford) Marriages, 1883-1900

East Cambridge today, image from Google Maps. Sacred Heart of Jesus is circled in red, and the map is oriented in a similar direction as the 1879 bird’s eye view.
