Today we’ve added seven new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Peter in Plymouth. This update adds over 7,852 records and over 31,132 names to search.

In James S. Sullivan’s One Hundred Years of Progress, the Plymouth entry begins with a lengthy comparison of the Pilgrims with the first Catholics of Plymouth, both groups looking for religious freedom. However, the Catholic church in Plymouth began much later than the arrival of the Pilgrims–in 1873 the cornerstone for this church was laid. It began as a mission of St. Bridget’s in Abington and became its own parish in 1876.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this parish available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Peter (Plymouth) Baptisms, 1872-1899
St. Peter (Plymouth) Baptisms, 1899-1906
St. Peter (Plymouth) Convert Baptisms, 1881-1914
