Research 101 for Church Historians

Special Educational Program offered on June 14, 2006.

We are offering a special research seminar to church historians, archivists, or any interested lay people who would enjoy a day of research into their congregation's past. We will also provide resources for planning anniversary celebrations and commemorative services.

The library and archive contain many wonderful resources. We have local church records, town histories, conference records, and denominational yearbooks dating back to the 1850s. Our collection also includes a wide variety of 18th and 19th century hymnals and sermons.

Your day at the Congregational library will include hands on instruction in searching and using our collections, a guided tour of the facilities, and an afternoon of guide research. Lunch will be provided. Registration fee (lunch included) is $20.00.

Please contact Jessica Steytler or 617-523-0470 to have a brochure mailed to you or if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston on June 14.
