Name of creator
Chalmers Presbyterian church was organized in Gould in 1845. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregationalist Churches, Chalmers Presbyterian Church decided to join the Union. Some dissident members, who decided to remain Presbyterian, established a new church in Lingwick, and called it Emanuel Presbyterian Church. In 1949, Emanuel Presbyterian church decided to join the United Church of Canada, and amalgamated itself with Chalmers United Church. Since then, the church has been called either Chalmers Emanuel United Church or Chalmers United Church.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the history and congregation's affairs of the Presbyterian church in Gould, known first as Chalmers Presbyterian Church (1845-1925) and then as Emanuel Presbyterian Church (1925-1949). It consists of minutes, annual reports, orders of service, a communion roll, a newspaper clipping, and a register of baptisms, marriages and burials. The annual reports may also be of interest to research as they contain information on baptisms and deaths for each year. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Vital Statistics (1931-1946), Session (1931-1949), Congregation (1897-1928), Photographs (1920), and Miscellaneous Documents ([190-?]-[192-?]).

Title based on content of fonds.
Emanuel Presbyterian Church (Gould) fonds.
The fonds was loaned for 50 years in 1996 by the Presbytery of Quebec of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
The classification of the fonds is based on the file classification plan established by Sylvie Côté, ETRC Archivist, for local Presbyterian Church records. Individual churches do not all have records falling in each of the system's prearranged series, subseries, and files. This fonds is an example, as it comprises only four series out of a possible nine.
