familysearch.org has been going a the change for better or worse. You can still access the old (familar) site interface. On the main page of familysearch.org, hit the blue bar *Go to previous site* on the right side of the page. I find I'm checking both *previous* and *current* interfaces to make sure I'm not missing something.

This link (hopefully) will take you direct to the page of on the Milwaukee Churches film available (on the "previous site")

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermain...

The good news of change is you can now order the film on-line and have it sent you your local FHC: https://www.familysearch.org/films/

Here's a link to partial transcription extracts of St Adelbert's and Holy Name:

This site has a listing of the churches on an interactive map. http://www.archmil.org/parishes/Find-Parish.htm#. I've used it in conjunction with location census data to narrow the possibilities of what parish to research in. The interactive map is contemporary, the data on the census is not. Milwaukee streets changed in 1931, here's a link to sort out the changes: http://stevemorse.org/census/changes/MilwaukeeChanges0.htm.

Here's a link to historical Milwaukee Maps that can come in handy: http://www4.uwm.edu/libraries/digilib/Milwaukee/records/maps...

Hope that helps.
