Archives & History resources now on Web
|National meeting here in July
Planning to celebrate your church’s anniversary? Researching Methodism in Oklahoma?
A Web presence recently was activated by the Oklahoma Conference’s Commission on Archives & History. The address: www.okumc.org/Archives_History.
You will find help there from multiple resources: Q&A for churches’ historians, suggestions to celebrate milestone moments, guidelines to pursue official recognition for historic sites, and more. You can connect to Oklahoma’s Methodist archives, which are housed at the Oklahoma City University library.
The website also offers details about a special July event in Oklahoma. The commission, chaired by Jerry Gill of Stillwater, is hosting meetings and the convocation of the General Commission on Archives & History and the denomination's Historical Society. Dates are July 21-24.
The archives’ newly upgraded space at OCU will be on display. Renovations include climate-controlled, energy-efficient systems. A soft opening will be conducted during National Library Week, which starts April 11, reported Christina Wolf, Conference archivist.
