New searchable Archdiocese of Boston records from Allston

St. Anthony of Padua in Allston from the Archdiocese of Boston Archives

Today we’ve added three new volumes and updated two volumes in Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Anthony of Padua in Allston. This update adds over 11,100 records and over 42,300 names to search.

St. Anthony’s grew from St. Columbkille in Brighton.  The cornerstone was laid in 1894.  James S. Sullivan’s One Hundred Years of Progress, describes in detail the construction of the church which was still in progress in 1895, explaining the future location of the altar (to be made of stone and marble) and the choir loft.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis, Eileen McCarthy, Liz Barnett, Sandy Murphy Mauer, Paul McCool, Angela Napolitano, Mary Coyne, Carolyn Jack, Jim Alcauskas and Maureen Keillor for their help with this update.
