Presbytery Records

The presbytery records at Columbia Theological Seminary include both records that were transferred from the Presbyterian Historical Society and records that have been deposited at the seminary since then. The denominations represented are current PC(USA) and former PCUS.

The Columbia Seminary Special Collections and Archives department continues to accept materials on deposit, including records of presbyteries and both active and dissolved congregations. For information about depositing records at Columbia Seminary, please contact the archivist.

A note on access: The policy of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is to restrict access to all official denomination records on deposit that are less than 50 years old. If researchers wish to access these records, we require that they secure written permission from the records’ owners. If you believe this restriction will affect your research, please contact us for further instructions prior to visiting.

If you have any questions, please contact us for assistance.
