Hi Patrick,

Maureen is correct in the info she has given you.

BVM would literally have been a block from where that Michael Enright
was living.
The question is would he have attended a largely Croation church?
LDS does have the marriage and births for BVM: film numbers 1289294
(Items 3-10) and 1289295 (items 1-3).

Using the Parish Locator* website, I think St Bernards at 340 W 66th
would be the closest Irish congregation. It would be about 7 blocks
or so from his Marshfield address.

LDS also has the St Bernard film: 1750419 Items 1-5.

This only goes to 1918.
Here is the description from the Family History Library Catalog:
Baptisms (orig.) .................. 1887-1916
Marriages ......................... 1887-1909 Baptisms (copies of
orig.) ........ 1887-1910 (includes indexes) Baptisms (copy of
orig.) .......... 1902-1915 Confirmations .....................
1912-1918

You can look at it yourself on the familysearch.org
site.

St Bernard's was closed in 1989, so the Archdiocese Archives would
have the records.
Send an email to Julie Satzik : and ask her
advice. She is very helpful.
