Subject: [ROOTS-L] St Mary's Burial Ground & Church records online
Date: Tue, 18 May 2004 18:45:42 -0400
I have just started putting the Cemetery Records for St.
Mary's Church in Philadelphia PA online. The records go
from 1788 to 1800. I have 1788-1791 online so far, the rest
St. Mary's, built in 1763, was the second Roman Catholic
institution in Philadelphia. It was the site of the first
public religious commemoration of the Declaration of
Independence. Members of the Continental Congress attended
services four times from 1777 to 1781. George Washington
worshiped at St. Marys on at least two occasions.
