Today we’ve added four new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Immaculate Conception in Newburyport. This update adds over 6,400 records and over 22,900 names to search.

In 1852, a cornerstone was laid for the Immaculate Conception church in Newburyport. When this parish was established, it covered the towns of Ipswich, Rowley, Newbury, West Newbury, Salisbury, and Amesbury. Many of these other towns gained churches of their own as time went on.

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

The new volumes are listed below:

Immaculate Conception (Newburyport) Baptisms, 1901-1918
Immaculate Conception (Newburyport) Baptisms, 1919-1920
Immaculate Conception (Newburyport) First Communions, 1919-1920
Immaculate Conception (Newburyport) Marriages, 1904-1920
