The Unitarian Universalist Historical Society has released a great new reference for people interested in chronicling the history of their beloved congregations. “Creating Congregational Histories” is a long-form essay adapted from UUHS Director Barbara Coeyman’s workshop at the 2007 GA in Portland. Dr. Coeyman takes you step by step through the process of researching and writing the history of your congregation, from initial thoughts about what history is and why we pursue it, to nuts-and-bolts processes of ferreting out data and arranging it. She also includes a bibliography of useful print and online resources for the budding or long-time congregational historian to take advantage of. Check it out!
