Historia

In 1976, the Synod of Newfoundland divided the single Diocese of Newfoundland into three separate dioceses (Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Central Newfoundland and Western Newfoundland), each with its own synod. Each diocesan synod maintains an archives where synod, diocesan, and parish records are kept. In most cases, all sacramental records pertaining to this diocese have been transferred to this Archives. However, some records still remain with the Archives for the Eastern Diocese. The Archives for the Western Diocese was established during the May 1989 Synod of the Western Diocese.

The Anglican Church’s Newfoundland records date from the early nineteenth century. The Diocesan Synod of Western Newfoundland Archives (DSWNA) contains records of the Western Diocese and the records of its parishes including baptismal, marriage, burial, and confirmation records. Synod records including parish service records, and minutes of general sessions of vestries and Synod are also available. Correspondence, records containing material of a sensitive nature may be available for use after consultation with the archivist. The Archives also contains a small number of church artifacts.
