Today we’ve added four new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Patrick in Cambridge. This update adds over 3,700 records and over 13,800 names to search.

As the Catholic population of East Cambridge grew, St. Patrick split from Sacred Heart of Jesus, becoming its own parish in 1908. On the Parish Boundary Map, you can see that St. Patrick’s served the northwestern corner of this neighborhood.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making these parishes available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Patrick (Cambridge) Baptisms, 1908-1920
St. Patrick (Cambridge) Baptisms, 1920
St. Patrick (Cambridge) Confirmations, 1909-1920
St. Patrick (Cambridge) Marriages, 1908-1920
