Do you know Yukon’s history?

The diocese of Yukon wants your help in a major research project to complete parish and clergy lists. They are looking for dates, documents, and photographs of churches and their leaders (including theological students and organists), dating back to 1861, when missionaries first arrived. Read a detailed description of the project here.

Cozmo Malarzby and Veronica Malerby, long-time members of Christ Church Cathedral, Whitehorse, launched the project after finding gaps and inaccuracies in archival material. Currently the diocese’s archives are spread between the government’s territorial archives, the Whitehorse cathedral, and parishes.

The son-and-mother historian team have completed several projects, including centenary research for St. Saviour’s Church, Carcross. Ms. Malerby, who worked for many years at Whitehorse’s historic old log church, looks forward to this ongoing project. “I’m excited to learn more about missionaries that came up and to pass information on to future generations,” she said.

If you have bits of Yukon history tucked away in your drawers, get in touch.
