Finding Aid - Congregations

For each Alberta Mennonite congregation, we would like to preserve the following records:

  • Congregational Website address
  • Governance:
    • Constitution
    • Bylaws
    • Statement of Faith
    • Board and Committee Members
    • Council Minutes
    • Committee Minutes
  • Membership:
    • Births
    • Baptisms
    • Marriages
    • Burials/funerals
  • Worship:
    • Worship bulletins
    • Sermons
  • Finances:
    • Audited Financial Statements
    • Annual Reports
  • Publications/Yearbooks/Compilations:
    • Congregational History
    • Newsletter
    • Membership Directory

This finding aid will point researchers to books and periodicals held in the MHSA Library as well as link to descriptions and inventories for records in our archival vault.

While our mandate is to collect, preserve and provide access to records of Alberta Mennonites and their ancestors, when records are donated to us for other geographical areas, we also preserve and provide access to them. In the case of Alberta congregations, all are listed, whether or not we have holdings from them.

Do contact us if you know of records and books that could be preserved for all Alberta congregations.
