Historic Lutheran church lends records collection
A collection of records for an Arkansas-based Lutheran church has become newly available to researchers at the Central Arkansas Library System's Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History and Art, it announced Tuesday.
Immanuel Lutheran Church, established by German settlers in Alexander in 1880, was a German-speaking congregation well into the 20th century, according to the announcement; the library's finding aid describes the collection spanning the years 1880-2005; and as containing documents, books and a limited number of photos, all of which were donated in 2014.
The records are available in the research room of the library's Butler Center for Arkansas Studies. Detailed information about the records can be found at bit.ly/2IoCRYm.
