Archdiocese of Boston: new searchable records from Newton and Charlestown

St. Francis de Sales (Charlestown) from One Hundred Years of Progress by James S. Sullivan, 1895, page 122

Today we’ve added nine new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from Our Lady Help of Christians in Newton and St. Francis de Sales in Charlestown. This update adds over 38,000 records and over 156,000 names to search.

Our Lady Help of Christians became an independent parish in 1878 when it separated from the Watertown church.

St. Francis de Sales is the oldest Catholic church in Charlestown. Situated on Bunker Hill, it was established in 1862.
