The Brethren Digital Archive committee meets today in Ashland, Ohio. The group is working to digitize historical Brethren publications from the mid-1800s until 2000, including issues of the Brethren Missionary Herald.
The Brethren Digital Archives includes representatives of the groups that trace their history to Alexander Mack and the group of eight people who were baptized in the Eider River in Schwarzenau, Germany. On today’s agenda is to select a vendor who will begin work on the first phase of the project, which includes all English-language publications of the groups prior to 1883.
