Custodial history

Records in the fonds were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear.

From 1925 through to 1982, the official repository for Conference, Presbytery and local records of the United Church in Saskatchewan was at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon). In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of records created by the Saskatchewan Branch of the WMS, its circles and treasurers, as well as the WMS Battleford and Moosomin Districts.

Contents include: branch meeting minutes (1906-1926); treasurer’s accounts (1906-1926); circles and bands cash and treasurer’s books (1917-1926); financial records of funds from various districts (1916-1926). There are also minutes from meetings of WMS Battleford District (1920-1926) and WMS Moosomin District (1919-1926).
