New & updated US genealogy records: 2-week summary

Below is a summary of US family history collections that have been either newly released or updated by the major genealogy databases in the last two weeks. (The last summary list was published on 14 August, see blogpost).

My regular summaries are designed to help family historians whose Irish ancestors emigrated, temporarily or permanently, to the United States. By default, they should also be useful to anyone carrying out research in the US, regardless of the origin of their ancestors.

The figures in parenthesis in the New Collections section are the numbers of records/images in each new record set.

Unless otherwise stated, the figures in parenthesis in the Updated Collections section reflect the number of records added to the collection in the recent update, if a number has been clearly noted by the supplier. I do not include updates of fewer than 1,000 records.






          St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Mary, both in Charlestown. (4,000+ names to browse)
          Sacred Heart in the North End of Boston (16,700 new pages to browse)
          St. Anthony of Padua, (11,100 records = 42,300 names to search)
