Coilbound Edition

In June of 1843, representatives at the Annual Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada resolved that a General Register of births and baptisms be kept at the Conference office in Toronto. Each year, every ordained minister was provided with a ruled book in which he was required to make uniform entries of births and baptisms. At the end of the year, the minister returned this book to the Conference Office and the entries were copied into the General Register.

This book is a transcription of the Baptismal register entries for Prescott County Ontario from 1840 through 1877

Contents include:
  • Map
  • Introduction
  • Users' Guide
  • Alphabetical List of Ministers
  • Alphabetical List of Places of Baptism
  • Bibliography
  • Sample page from the Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Register
  • Transcription of the register
  • Index (click here to browse the Index)
This book is the result of a joint project by the United Church of Canada, Victoria University Archives, and the Ontario Genealogical Society. The actual transcription work was done by a team of volunteers from The Ontario Genealogical Society.

The volunteers who designed the project,and those who transcribed, proofread and produced the transcription of the Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Register include: Heather Beed, Lois Black, Beth Clarke, Charlie Clarke, John Craig, Douglas Gordon, Alison Hare, Dorothy Martin, Jetta McClure, Burgess Moore, Sandra Moore, Trevor O' Brien, Joan Phillips, Don Pounder, Mary Tasker and Marie Smibert.
