Today we’ve added 5 new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from St. Ann in Dorchester. This update adds over 6,100 records and over 22,300 names to search.

The parish of St. Ann in Neponset celebrated its first Mass on Christmas in 1880 after breaking off from St. Gregory’s. The church was dedicated in 1892 and continued to grow into the new century.

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

The new volumes are listed below:

St. Ann (Dorchester) Baptisms, 1904-1915
St. Ann (Dorchester) Baptisms, 1915-1920
St. Ann (Dorchester) Confirmations, 1906-1920
St. Ann (Dorchester) First Communions, 1906-1920
St. Ann (Dorchester) Marriages, 1889-1920
