How the Archives of the Episcopal Church safeguards the official records of the Episcopal Church worldwide

Established by its main governing body, the General Convention, in 1835, the Episcopal Archives holds records dating back to colonial times. As the official repository of The Episcopal Church, it holds and manages both historical and contemporary corporate records. The Episcopal Archives is also the repository for official publications of local and national Church entities, and personal records of prominent Episcopalians.

The initial volume of data to be archived is around 100 TB, and this is expected to grow.
