What is the Archive?
The General Archive is a private archive belonging to the Generalate of the Sisters of Nazareth. As such our primary aim is to provide a safe repository for material deposited by the Superior General and General Councillors.
We also hold a wealth of historical documents, including record books, registers and photographs, relating to the work of the Sisters throughout the world. Our holdings date from the very beginnings of the order in the 1850s to the present day. Over the years the archive has proved to be a valuable resource for Sisters in the Congregation, former children, family historians and academic researchers. We welcome enquiries and always try to respond as quickly as possible.
