A wide variety of resources, both from our Wisconsin Commission on Archives and History, and from the General Commission on Archives and History, are available to provide assistance and guidance to local church historians and history buffs alike.
Our Conference Archives can help with local church anniversary celebrations. Be sure to share any special anniversary or church events with the Archives, as well as copies of church histories, or special bulletins. We will add whatever you send us to your church’s files and look to add to our next issue of Flashbacks.
