Today we’ve added four new volumes to Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 and updated three volumes from Holy Trinity in Boston. This update adds over 1,100 new pages to browse.
Holy Trinity was the heart of the German Catholic community in Boston. The parish was established in 1836; the first Mass in their church building was said in 1844. Read more about the history of the parish in our late volunteer Michael Hager’s American Ancestors magazine article. You can learn more about the Monatsbote, their parish newsletter in Thomas Lester’s article in the Pilot.
We’d like to thank volunteers Ross Weaver, Bill Wolfendale and Kim Bonner for their help making this update possible.
