Restricted online resources now available! Interested Society members should contact us for login information (see contact information below).

In an attempt to meet the needs of our constituents--especially those who live at a distance from Lancaster--we are beginning the process of making certain library and archival resources available electronically through our website. Some of these resources will be restricted to members of the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society and will require a login and password (see login form to the right).

Please see the list of available online resources below. Additional resources and files will be added as they become available. Please keep checking this page for status updates. Thank you!

To become a member of the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, call 717-393-9745, or join online. Please note that joining online does not provide instantaneous access to the restricted content. If you recently joined, and have not yet received your welcome letter, please contact if you would like the current login information.
