Today we have added 7 new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920. Today’s additions include the parishes of Immaculate Conception in Lowell and St. Brigid in Maynard. This update includes over 1,300 pages, and over 150,000 searchable names.

Immaculate Conception in Lowell was run by the Oblate Order. The church was dedicated in 1877 as Lowell’s Catholic population grew.

St. Brigid (Maynard) was variously a mission of Marlborough and Concord before becoming its own parish in the 1890s.

We’d like to thank our dedicated team of volunteers for their work on this, including; Colleen Alm, Liz Barnett, Tim Belgrad, Ria Bhandarkar, Lisa Donovan, Amelia Devin Freedman, Carolyn Jack, Aidan Largey, Sandy Murphy Mauer, Stacey-Rae McCue, Eileen McCarthy, Maureen McCarthy, Paul McCool, Matt Murphy, and Bob Rainville. If you would like to become part of the team working on rewarding genealogical projects, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
