A Whole New World of Catholic Records
If you have been researching Catholic ancestors for years, you are most likely thrilled to discover that many of those difficult to find Catholic records are becoming more accessible!
Our October speaker, Margaret Fortier, will be discussing the exciting recent developments in online Catholic records, both U.S. and international. Included in her presentation will be information on what the specific records mean, what information they contain, and how to locate them, whether online or off-line. These records include sacramental records, as well as other Catholic related resources (newspapers, parish histories, cemeteries, etc.)
If you are a regular in-person attendee of our Society meetings, you may recognize Margaret, as she has visited us in the past with her presentations on French Canadian research. For those who are not familiar with her, Margaret Fortier is a professional genealogist with more than 20 years experience. Margaret's research focuses on immigrants to New England, particularly Irish, Italian, Portuguese, and French Canadian. She has also worked as a reviewer for the Archdiocese of Boston French-Catholic records being indexed by New England Historic Genealogical Society (AmericanAncestors.org.)
