AmericanAncestors adds more RC Boston registers

AmericanAncestors.org, the online database of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), has added a further ten volumes to its database of Roman Catholic records from the Archdiocese of  Boston, Massachusetts.

The new records are from St Mary's in Lynn and they date from 1789 to 1900. The upload adds more than 39,000 records to the collection and 148,000 names.

The new volumes are as follows:

St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms 1872-1893, Part 1
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms 1872-1893, Part 2
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms 1893-1897
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms 1897-1900
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms and Marriages 1837-1841
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms and Marriages 1851-1861
St. Mary (Lynn) Baptisms and Marriages 1862-1872
St. Mary (Lynn) First Communions and Confirmations 1881-1900
St. Mary (Lynn) Marriages 1872-1893
St. Mary (Lynn) Marriages 1893-1900

The database is fully searchable/viewable to Individual-level and above NEHGS members only.

If you are not a paying member, create a free guest account to browse the images. Then search the index, note the register and page numbers of the entries you want to search and then browse. I've just done this for an entry that interested me. It's a little laborious, but it works.
