Can someone answer some questions for me? I am writing the Historical
Foundation at Montreat. I know which Presbytery the church records I am
looking for would be in (North Alabama, late 1800's & early 1900's) and the
name of the church (Westminster) which is no longer in existence. I am told
they will do research for you. How do they charge? Also, how did
Presbyterians leaving one area achieve membership in a Presbyterian church in
their new location? I know some denominations gave (and still do) a "letter"
that they were members in good standing and they were more or less
automatically received into their new church. Did the old Presbyterians
follow this practice?
Appreciate any help!
