CDP6. Religion and Religious Organizations

 Record Group
Identifier: CDP6
Immigration to the central Upper Peninsula from Northern, Central, and Southern Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries had a significant impact on the social, cultural, and political development of the region. Immigrants brought with them their religious ideals and institutions, which significantly influenced the Upper Peninsula's historical development. The Archives seeks to collect primary source material that documents religious institutions and organizations.


This collection guide includes collections from member organizations of UPLINK (the Upper Peninsula Digital Network) as well as the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives. UPLINK collections document the history of the Upper Peninsula broadly, while the Central UP & NMU Archives focuses on such topics as Northern Michigan University history, the local iron mining industry, and the politics, economics, religion, environment, and culture of the Central Upper Peninsula region.

These finding aids will give you an overview of the contents and context of each collection. Finding aids only exist for collections that each organization has shared with UPLINK or (in the case of the NMU Archives) for processed collections. For a more comprehensive list of collections that might help with your research, please contact the relevant heritage organization(s) directly.
