Today we’ve added eight new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Mary in Dedham. This update adds over 11,700 records and over 48,100 names to search.

St. Mary (Dedham) was established as its own parish in 1866.  It had previously been a mission of St. Joseph in Roxbury since 1846.  The mission volumes for this parish also include records for St. Raphael (East Dedham) and St. Theresa of Avila (West Roxbury).

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making these parishes available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Mary (Dedham) Baptisms, 1866-1876
St. Mary (Dedham) Baptisms, 1877-1880 (Mission)
St. Mary (Dedham) Baptisms, 1877-1885
