Archdiocese of Boston: St. Joseph (Boston) marriages and confirmations now searchable

Boston’s West End in the 1800s [Public domain]

Today we’ve added five new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1900 from St. Joseph in Boston. This update adds over 9,000 records and over 77,000 names to search. The baptisms for this parish are already part of the searchable collection. This parish was scanned in two parts, so now these 5 volumes complete the set up to 1900.

St. Joseph is located in Boston’s West End. The parish coalesced around 1862 as the Catholic population grew.
