By Taylor Murray In the 1990s, the CBHS published a biannual periodical titled The Bulletin of the Canadian Baptist Historical Society. Under the excellent editorial guidance of Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin, each edition contained academic articles, book notes, and announcements. It was designed to be a “substantial means of information and incentive for Canadian scholars involved in researching aspects of Baptist history, in particular those relating to Canada.”1 For the last several decades, the CBHS has not published the Bulletin. In its place, it has focused its publishing efforts on its book ..read more

While these materials are easily browsable on their respective websites, they are not the only sources available in a digital format. The Canadian Baptist Archives (CBA) in Hamilton, Ontario, has also scanned a variety of sources, many of which are available upon request and approval.1 Survey of Material Among the primary s ..read more

Baptists and Digital Research in Canada, Part One: Some Notable Resources

By Taylor Murray The pandemic caused many difficulties for a lot of people – some were serious, while others were minor inconveniences. Although certainly closer to the latter than the former, one such struggle for historians was the amount that it limited our research. Much like everything else in the country, archives were closed to the public, so unless you knew an archivist who was willing to go above and beyond, you were sometimes stuck with what research you already had.
