Last year, Christ Church Preservation Trust and the Athenaeum of Philadelphia embarked on a three year Council for Library and Information Resources (CLIR) project to digitize the records of 11 of Philadelphia’s oldest congregations. Please join us at the Athenaeum (219 S. 6th Street) on Wednesday, April 3 from 2-4 p.m. for a program that explores the uses different scholars have made of these early records (1708-1870) as well as others.
