Finding Aids, Records


The Presbyterian Church Archives has developed a number “Finding Aids” or “Guides” to help researchers learn about the records in our holdings. Our holdings are largely organized into the 7 primary categories listed below. Just “click” on one of the categories for more information. In some cases electronic copies of the Finding Aids related to that category are available. We hope to have more available, as time and resources permit.

Note: We may have more records than those reflected in the Finding Aids. Please contact the Archives directly for an up-to-date listing.

Historical Language Advisory

Certain parts of The Presbyterian Church in Canada archival holdings contain historical language and content that some may consider offensive. This may include language used to refer to racial, ethnic, and cultural groups. The descriptions and content of our collections are reflective of the time period when they were created and the view of their creator.

In order to preserve attitudes and views within the historical record, the original description of materials has been retained. As an ongoing process, the archivists may provide explanatory notes with background information of the descriptions.

If you see records with inappropriate language that you feel the archivists should review, please contact us.
