Conference journal memoirs a searchable database for conference journal memoirs ( )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The database was designed as an index to a resource, not as a resource itself. It does not contain complete biographical information, or a complete pastoral record. This database is an index to the memoirs printed in the various annual conference journals held by the General Commission on Archives and History of The United Methodist Church. Not only are there memoirs of pastors in these journals, but often their spouses and in some cases lay leaders of the annual conference. The database only contains information up to the 1939 conference journals of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Protestant Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South and prior to 1946 for the Evangelical Church, The United Brethren in Christ and the United Evangelical Church. There are approximately 61,000 name entries. The database gives you the information to determine in what journal, year, and page the memoir appears. You will still need to locate the journal in order to get at the information

Asia and the West diplomacy and cultural exchange ( )
in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This archive will enable students and scholars to examine a selection of records that constitute a political and social history of Western interaction with a number of Asian countries during the nineteenth century. Most of the manuscript collections in this archive consist of the British Foreign Office and United States consular and diplomatic records. These records were generally maintained in the local consular or diplomatic posts and reflect the day-to-day accounting of the activities of the indigenous populations and their national governments, the expansion of trade, and the exercise of extraterritorial rights and treaty provisions. In addition, a selection of missionary correspondence and journals has been included, as missionaries usually provided some of the earliest contact in various Asian locales with Western ideals."--Publisher description
