Resource: Florida Annual Conference Missionary Legacy Preservation Project

The Florida Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church has launched an ambitious digital humanities project that seeks to collect and preserve materials related to the history of missionaries from the Florida Annual Conference. Called the "The World Parish: Serving Beyond Boundaries-The Missionary Legacy Preservation Project," this digit humanities resource has the potential to be of significant interest to church members and academic historians alike.

An overview article about the project can be found here. The project contains nearly 500 items ranging from decades ago to the present. The materials can be browsed by collection (such as organizations, journals, laity, missionary families, etc.) or by tag (mostly related to place of service, program, and organization). The project also has a well-elaborated search function.
