Archives and History
The C. Wesley Christman Archives of the NY Annual Conference
Welcome! The Christman Archives collects and preserves conference records, closed church records, personal collections, journals, and monographs relating to the history and mission of the New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. The Archives answers reference questions regarding New York area Methodist history and genealogy, and also provides workshops and other records management services to New York Annual Conference local churches.
