Sturbridge, Mass. Congregational Church - Personal records

return to collection page


Relations are written accounts of individuals' religious experience, often required in the process of applying for full membership. This collection contains several dozen such documents, many in the congregants' own handwriting. It also includes related membership records, such as requests for dismission to join other churches and confessions of sins written in order to return to the good graces of the church.

  Full transcriptions of the relations documents are available.
