Archdiocese of Boston: New browsable records from Boston and Newton

St. Columbkille (Brighton) from the Archdiocese of Boston Archives

Today we’ve added twelve new volumes and updated eleven volumes in Massachusetts: (Image-Only) Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Bernard (Newton), St. Columbkille (Brighton), St. Joseph (Boston), and St. Mary (Boston). This update adds over 2,700 new pages to browse.

We’d like to thank volunteers Bill Wolfendale, Kim Bonner, Angela Napolitano and Eileen McCarthy for their help making this update possible.
