Today we’ve added three new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Our Lady of Pity in Cambridge. This update adds over 5,000 records and over 19,800 names to search.

Also known as Notre Dame de Pitie, Our Lady of Pity was the French parish in North Cambridge, established in 1892. Prior to the establishment of this parish, French-Canadians living in Cambridge may have attended Mass at other churches in Cambridge or traveled all the way to Our Lady of Victories in Boston.

We’d like to thank Debbie Lansing, Bob Anderson, Julie Roffo, Shaune-Marie Berg, Kathy Oberley and Becki Clarke for their help making this parish available on our site.

The new volumes are listed below:

Our Lady of Pity (Cambridge) Baptisms, 1892-1908
Our Lady of Pity (Cambridge) Confirmations, 1899-1919
Our Lady of Pity (Cambridge) Marriages, 1892-1908
