Today we’ve added six new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from the St. Mary of the Annunciation in Cambridge. This update adds over 42,000 records and over 157,500 names to search.
In One Hundred Years of Progress (1895), James S. Sullivan describes the parish, “This is one of the most influential and prosperous parishes in the Archdiocese and considering that it was organized no further back than 1866…its growth is little short of the marvelous.” When this parish was established, it was in the Cambridgeport neighborhood. It is not located within the modern bounds of Cambridgeport. Wikipedia explains the shifting boundaries of this neighborhood. The church was established on the corner of Harvard and Norfolk Streets, in the modern neighborhood of the Port, in between Central and Inman Squares.
We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making these volumes available online.

St. Mary of the Annunciation (Cambridge) Baptisms, 1867-1878
