Archdiocese of Boston: Blessed Sacrament in Walpole now searchable

Today we’ve added five new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Blessed Sacrament in Walpole. This update adds over 7,300 records and over 27,500 names to search.

James Sullivan describes the beginnings of this parish which was originally called St. Francis in One Hundred Years of Progress. In about 1876, enough Catholics lived in Walpole to begin organizing the parish. By the early 1900s, this parish had grown large enough to build a new church, which was renamed Blessed Sacrament in 1913. The Walpole Library has a very extensive history of the parish available.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help with this update.

The new volumes are listed below:

Blessed Sacrament (Walpole) Baptisms, Marriages, and Confirmations, 1872-1901
Blessed Sacrament (Walpole) Baptisms, Marriages, and Confirmations, 1901-1916
