Today we’ve added six new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Mary in Foxborough and St. Mary in Georgetown. This update adds over 6,400 records and over 24,000 names to search.
St. Mary’s in Foxborough became an independent parish in 1880. Prior to this date, various priests from a few different parishes would come to say mass in this area. They had a church in this town as early as 1859.
In 1873 the church of St. Mary’s in Georgetown was dedicated. For some time, it was a mission of the church in Haverhill. As the Catholic population in this area grew, St. Patrick’s in Groveland began as a mission of this parish.
We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making these parishes available online.
The new volumes are listed below:
St. Mary (Foxborough) Baptisms and Marriages, 1880-1901
St. Mary (Foxborough) Baptisms, 1896-1901
