Since the founding of the Center for the EUB Heritage in 1979, more than one hundred individuals and organizations have donated their papers and artifacts. These items document many aspects of the EUB tradition including beliefs, practices, church life, evangelism, missions, publishing, education, and church union.
With the help of our donors, the Center’s collections now include thousands of books, periodicals, congregational histories, personal journals, sermons, letters, photographs, slides, audio and video recordings, and artifacts.
Each year donors contribute additional valuable historical materials that further enhance our understanding of the EUB Church’s past and its legacy in the present.
The intent of this collections policy statement is to make public the origin, purpose, and operational guidelines of the Center for the Evangelical United Brethren Heritage.
Denominational History Vertical File
The Vertical File contains folders of data on congregations, programs, events, persons, and historic sites associated with the Evangelical, United Brethren, EUB, and United Methodist churches.
Denominational Publications Collection
This Special Collection consists of more than 7,000 volumes published by the Evangelical United Brethren Church and its predecessor denominations. It features conference journals, denominational disciplines and year books, histories, biographies, hymnals, Sunday School publications, and periodicals. The Denominational Publications Collection also includes a few Methodist Protestant, Methodist Episcopal, and ME, South titles. These items are listed in the Library Catalog. Most volumes do not circulate. It is possible to search for these items through the O’Brien Library Catalogue, but it would be better if you contacted the Center to find materials.
View the collection using the United Online Catalog.
Genealogy and Local History Resources
There is not just one genealogical section. Information of this nature can be found in the denominational periodicals, conference journals, microfilm, the vertical file, etc. As a result, it is suggested that you contact the Center if you are seeking genealogical information and we will be glad to help you learn more about your relatives who were part of the Evangelical, United Brethren, or Evangelical United Brethren traditions.
