Our History: Archives & Preservation

One of the more unusual enterprises has been the formation of a parish archives. Begun in 1974 and formally constituted in 1976, its organization, preservation, and exhibition of parish records and historical collections from the eighteenth century to the present—all of which have undergone professional conservation treatment—has become a national model.

In 1983, an environmentally controlled room was built in the Parish Hall to house the collections, which are open by appointment to the interested visitor. Requests for church records concerning births, marriages, deaths, and related genealogy can be sent to the Church Historian, St. Michaelís Church, 26 Pleasant Street, Marblehead, MA 01945 or emailed to the Church office.
