John Stewart United Methodist Church (Upper Sandusky, Ohio) - MS 466 mf

Introduction | Order of Microfilming

 Introduction

The records of the John Stewart United Methodist Church, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, on August 11, 1986, with the cooperation of Thelma Marsh. The collection consists of ten volumes of record books, dating from 1859 to 1986, and containing information on membership including baptisms, marriages, and beginning in 1951, funerals. Board minutes are available only for the years 1905-1921. Of special interest is a photocopied record book of the Wyandott Missionary Society, dating from its organization in 1828 to 1847. Included are incorporation documents and membership lists which document the Indians who were members of this Society.

Minutes of the Women's Home Missionary Society, 1903-1904; the Women's Foreign Missionary Society, 1937-1940; and the Women's Society of Christian Service, 1940-1979, complete this collection.

This collection is open for research and no restrictions exist on the duplication of documents for research purposes. The finding aid was prepared by Ann Bowers during August 1986.
