Today we have added 11 new volumes, and updated 2 others, to the Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 database. Today’s addition includes the parishes of Immaculate Conception in Revere and St. Joseph in Medford, and includes over 1,200 pages, 16,000 records and over 50,000 searchable names.

Revere was initially part of the parish of St. Rose of Lima in Chelsea, and then became a mission of Immaculate Conception in Everett. In 1888, work began on a church of their own for Revere’s Catholics. In 1883 St. Joseph (Medford) became its own independent parish, previously being part of the church in Malden.

The volumes published today are:
• Immaculate Conception (Revere) Baptisms, 1902-1912
