Today we’ve added six new volumes to Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Our Lady of Pompeii in Boston’s South End. This update adds over 1,800 new pages to browse.

Boston College’s Global Boston project describes Our Lady of Pompeii: “Moving out from the North End, many immigrants from southern Italy lived in the New York Streets and worshipped at Our Lady of Pompeii on Florence Street, founded in 1902.” The New York Streets were one of Boston’s first areas targeted for urban “renewal”–most of the neighborhood was razed in the 1950s.

We’d like to thank volunteers Eileen McCarthy, Katie McNally, Angela Napolitano, Ross Weaver and Bill Wolfendale for their help making this update possible.
