Biographical history

The Marsboro Presbyterian Congregation was apparently formed in 1858, its first church being built in 1872. From 1881 to 1890, it was apparently attached to the Lake Megantic Canada Presbyterian Church; subsequently it became independent. In 1907, the Church decided to erect a new church building, which was completed in 1909. The Marsboro Presbyterian Church closed down in 1944. Marsboro Presbyterian Church was under the jurisdiction of the Presbytery of Quebec of the Synod of Quebec and Eastern Ontario of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. It was governed by the congregation and the church courts (board of managers and session) in co-operation with committees, societies, and organizations within the Church, such as the Ladies' Aid Society.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds contains source material on Church management, the congregation's affairs, and the Ladies' Aid Society from 1874 to the 1980s. It also provides information on the management of Lake Megantic Presbyterian Church from 1874 to 1889. The fonds consists mainly of minute books; registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials; communion rolls; annual reports; and accounting books. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Vital Statistics (1882-1984), Session (1881-1943), Congregation (1908-[198-?]), Board of Managers (1874-1944), Women's Organizations (1929-1942), and Photographs (1914-[1980?]).

General note

Title based on contents of fonds.
The fonds was loaned in 1996 for 50 years 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 six series out of a possible nine.
The documents are in English.
