Today we’ve added 11 new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Sacred Heart in Boston. This update adds over 20,200 records and over 68,600 names to search.

Usually we add all the records of a single parish at once. Most parishes contain less than 10 volumes for the 20 year time period we’re currently working on (1901-1920). However, Sacred Heart in Boston’s North End consists of 37 volumes. So in this special case, I am uploading this parish in pieces over a series of weeks. This week I’ve added 11 new volumes (joining the 19 previously available new volumes). I will work to be as clear as possible in each Database News post so that interested researchers know what is available in each update. This current update completes the baptism, confirmation, and first communion records for this parish. There are just 7 marriage volumes left that will be coming soon.

The new volumes are listed below:

Sacred Heart (Boston) Baptisms, 1916
Sacred Heart (Boston) Baptisms, 1916-1917
Sacred Heart (Boston) Baptisms, 1917-1918
