General note

Title based on contents of fonds.
Preservation photocopying was done for a part of the Index to the registers of baptisms, marriages and burials (UC074/008/010) in 2007.
The documents were loaned in 1993 by the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. Parts of this fonds (UC074) and fonds PC014 have the same provenance; however, we must treat them separately as the material is owned by different institutions.
There is 1 unprocessed acquisition (1929-2004): 0.25 l.m. of textual records and 2 architectural drawings. The archives of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery local churches and pastoral charges are all arranged according to a common classification system established by Susan Stanley, former Montreal and Ottawa Conference Archivist.
