New Catholic Records online at FindMyPast
FindMyPast recently released more than 4 million Catholic records from the New York, Chicago and Baltimore archdioceses. The release was part of FindMyPast’s Catholic Heritage Archive which aims to digitize the historical records of the Catholic Church not only in North America but also the UK and Ireland.
The New York baptism and marriage records are transcribed indexes only at this stage. However, the Chicago records include both transcriptions and images of the parish baptism, marriage, burial and cemetery registers.
The Baltimore parish records number only 57,000, are not searchable and are available on a browse only basis. Hopefully they will be transcribed in due course and become searchable.
Overall these records are an excellent addition to FindMyPast’s collection.
Let me know in the Comments Section below if you were successful in finding any ancestors among these records.
