This latest volume in the series, Records of the Moravians Among the Cherokees, continues the use of original diaries, minutes, and correspondence in the Moravian Archives in Winston-Salem, NC, to provide a first-hand account of daily life among the Cherokees from the perspectives of missionaries living amongst them in the first half of the nineteenth century. Priced at $40.00 per volume plus tax.
We are now open to the public Monday -Thursday from 9:30am-4:30pm, with an appointment required for visits between noon and 1:30pm. The Archives will close to the public on Fridays to allow staff time to process accessions from churches, church agencies, and private collections.
On January 11 at 12:15pm, Rev. Dr. Nola Reed Knouse speaks in the Spaugh Lecture/Recital Hall on “Music of the Nazareth Moravian Church Collection and the Collegium Musicum.”
The Archives welcomes this month two Salem College students for “Jan Term” project work, cataloging both archival materials and tintype photographs in our collections. If you know a student who is looking for work study, internship, or library-project experience, please invite them to contact our facility.
Family History Docents learn extra information about the resources we have available for public use in doing genealogical research, and in exchange they are asked to work a few weekly hours in the Archives for a season so they may help family researchers who visit our Archives. If you’d like a direct email about our Docent program when details are available later this month, send us a request to email@example.com
