Commission on Archives + History
Wondering about your beloved local church history or are you doing family genealogy? The Commission on Archives & History preserves the records and promotes the stories of existing and antecedent Conferences, denominations and local congregations of the United Methodist Church in Indiana. To this end we work alongside the Joint Archives Committee to provide archival services at DePauw University to preserve valuable documents and historical items. Any United Methodist Church member can do free genealogical research on such things as the historical involvement of their family in the church, baptisms, weddings, etc. The Commission also spearheads training for Local Church Historians and oversees UM historical sites around Indiana, among many other things.
