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.
The Archives receives its funding through Shared Ministry Apportionments and is guided by the Commission on Archives and History of the New York Annual Conference. See below for current news, and see the links to the right for additional information.
