Anglican Diocese of Moosonee

In an effort to ensure the preservation of their records and to facilitate access, the Anglican Diocese has deposited their records at the Laurentian University Archives.  We provide access under the policies and conditions stipulated by the Diocese of Moosonee.

The records deposited in the archives were generated by the Synod Office and by parishes of the Diocese.

Synod Office Records:

The Synod Office records consist of administrative and historical diocesan records documenting the history of the diocese.

Information concerning parish registers can be found under the following Parochial Records section. 

Parochial Records

Please refer to the following information which applies to the parochial records:

There are 69 parishes in the Diocese of Moosonee for which we have records. They mainly consist of documents that were produced, received, and accumulated by the parishes. Due to the fragile state of preservation of the parish registers and the nature of the information, these are not accessible to researchers. The archives' employees will do the search for any request of baptism, marriage and burial records. (See access conditions) 

Record Requests

Archives staff will provide assistance with research services; however, we are unable to commit to more than two hours of our time for such research. As an alternative, we can provide you with names of freelance researchers who, for an hourly fee, can do the research for you. Although we can provide you with names of researchers, it is your responsibility to negotiate the agreement with him or her. The LU archives is not responsible for the research done by these researchers.

Policies and conditions of access:

The following PDF document outlines the policies and conditions for accessing the parochial records. It will allow you to determine your eligibility for access, and it will identify the information that you will need prior to making a request.
