Today we’ve added seven new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Joseph in Waltham. This update adds over 6,100 records and over 19,800 names to search.

In 1894 the French Canadian congregation of Waltham first gained a pastor. It took a few years to purchase a church building, but eventually St. Joseph’s was established on Central St. in the former Christ Church Episcopal building.

We’d like to thank volunteers Debbie Lansing, David Anderson, Bruce McKeeman, Loretta Brown-Aldrich, Kathy Oberley, Erin Canzano, Carol Farrington and Stacey-Rae McCue for their help making these volumes available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Joseph (Waltham) Baptisms, 1894-1916
St. Joseph (Waltham) Confirmations, 1896-1920
St. Joseph (Waltham) Deaths, 1895-1920
St. Joseph (Waltham) First Communions and Confirmations, 1895-1920
St. Joseph (Waltham) First Communions, 1895-1920
St. Joseph (Waltham) Marriages and Deaths, 1895-1907
St. Joseph (Waltham) Marriages, 1895-1920
