Archives Hours and Services

The denomination has two official archives: Mennonite Church USA Archives--Goshen, and Mennonite Church USA--North Newton. They contain the official records of Mennonite Church USA and its agencies. Mennonite Church USA was born, February 1, 2002 as the result of a merger of two bodies--The General Conference Mennonite Church (1860-2002) and the Mennonite Church (1898-2002).

The Goshen archives was founded in 1937, and has retained materials from the Mennonite Church, 1898-2002 . The Archives is located on Goshen College campus, and cooperates with the Mennonite Historical Library, Goshen College, in serving the church and research community. That library houses genealogy history books, rare books, Mennonite periodicals and books. The archives houses the official records of the church, and many personal papers of Mennonites, Hutterites, Amish and some other Anabaptist groups.

The North Newton archives has retained materials from the General Conference Mennonite Church, 1860-2002 . It is housed at Bethel College, along with their Mennonite Library. The two repositories also hold personal papers of individuals, as well as records from some inter-Mennonite organizations, such as Mennonite Central Committee.
