The Catholic Record Society
An organization, founded, 1904, largely through the efforts of Joseph S. Hansom, to transcribe, print, index, and distribute to its members, the Catholic registers of baptism, marriages, and deaths, and other old records of the faith, chiefly personal and genealogical, since the Reformation in England and Wales.
About 30 volumes have thus far been issued, including several diaries of the English College at Douai; a volume of documentary evidence concerning the English martyrs; annals of the English community of Blue Nuns in Paris from 1658 to the dissolution in 1792; documents relating to the Venenerable Philip Howard; and 16 volumes of "Miscellanea" which have proved of great value to serious students of history and others.
Subscribers of one guinea per annum are entitled to any of the society's publications during the year.
The affairs of the society are managed by a council, to which only Catholic members may belong.
