New Updates to the Catholic Heritage Archive at Findmypast!

[Editor’s Note: We just received this AMAZING update from Findmypast related to new Catholic Parish Records in the US – I have so many Catholic ancestors in New York so I know what I’ll be working on this weekend!]

We’ve added more brand new records to our unique Catholic Heritage Archive and we’re giving you a sneak peek at what’s in store in the coming weeks.

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Records on Findmypast

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Registers

The latest archdiocese to make their records exclusively available through our Catholic Heritage Archive is also America’s oldest – Baltimore.

If your Catholic ancestors settled in the largest city in Maryland, you can now search for their records in four distinct record sets:

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Baptisms

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Marriages

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Burials

Baltimore Roman Catholic Parish Congregational Records

Each record includes an indexed transcript which will reveal vital genealogical information like parents’ names, event year and age. The record images go a step further and could tell you your ancestor’s godparents’ names, ceremony attendees and even if they were a slave.

Search the collection

When searching, use our parish list to establish the exact areas and years covered by this exciting new record collection.
