Moravian Materials

Over the last 25 years I have transcribed many materials from the Moravian Archives, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Moravian Archives, Church House, Muswell Hill, London, United Kingdom; and the Unity Archives in Herrnhut, Germany.  Materials are reproduced with the permission of the Moravian Archives, Bethlehem, PA.
