Archdiocese of Boston: new searchable records from St. Joseph in Boston’s West End

St. Joseph’s Church from The Catholic churches of Boston and its vicinity… by William Augustine Leahy, 1892

Today we’ve added three new volumes and updated three volumes in Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Joseph in Boston. This update adds over 15,800 records and over 59,400 names to search.

St. Joseph is located in Boston’s West End. An old Congregational church was purchased in 1862, and the parish was formed to serve the growing Catholic population of this neighborhood. According to the parish history, by 1900, St. Joseph’s was serving 12,000 parishioners.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this parish available online.

The new and updated volumes are listed below. Volumes with an asterisk have been updated. Previously they were truncated to only display records from before January 1, 1901. Now they are presented on our site in their complete form or presenting records up to December 31, 1920:
