Boston Catholic Cemetery Assoc. said:All records burned before 1878 True?

Is this true?? After searching the Catholic Churches & Archdiocese no one has mentioned this until now...... Anyone have more they can add. I'm trying to track down a baby that was born and died a year and half later but no records have been found but not one person has mentioned the fires. Is this just for the Boston Catholic Cemetery Association did they control the cemeteries back then or was this for all the Catholic Church records.

I am sorry but we have no records before June 6, 1878. All of our records
prior to that date were destroyed in a fire.


Any thoughts I don't want to spin my wheels if all catholic church records and cemetery records are gone before 1878. Any thoughts?
