Dear Janice,David, Marilyn and Sue,

St. Peter and Paul Church in South Boston which was the most likely church the Flanagans attended.Unfortunately the church was closed a few years ago. The records are now kept at St. Vincent de Paul Church. Records prior to 1930 are in the Archdiocesan Archives and unfortunately they are relocating and no requests will be accepted until 2009.

Thank you again for all your help,
