The Meetinghouse is our newsletter published a few times a year
since 2008. In the spirit of openness we publish our current newsletter for all to see how active we are. If you are not a member, then we hope you will consider joining CFHA and being part of our efforts.

Also, if you can help us by submitting written material for the next issue of The Meetinghouse, then contact Tim Chisholm. His information is on the Contact page.

The Meetinghouse files can be large so be patient while they download.

2. Canadian Journal of Quaker History
The Journal was started in 1989 as a bound edition of historical articles and published first semi annually and now annually. The Journal took over the role of offering researched articles from the earlier Newsletters (#1 to 45). That is why the first Journal was numbered #46. Past copies of the Journal are available on CD through our Bookstore. Journals from 1989 to the present are posted below. The Journal is issued to members as part of the membership fee and is one of the appreciated rewards for being a member.

Call for Papers: The Journal is looking for well-written articles on any area of Canadian Quaker history. If you or someone you know has an article of interest, contact Robynne Rogers Healey to let her know. Her email address and other details are available on this style sheet and also on the Contact page.

No index to the Journals below has been created. However the file below collects all the Table of Contents of the Journals since 1989 and is a quick aid in directing you to articles of interest.

3. Newsletters from 1972 to 1988 and then 1998 to 2005
From 1972 to 1989 CFHA published the "Newsletter" up to 4 times a year. Each issue contained mostly researched articles and transcriptions and as time went on they began to also include association news. Posted below are these old newsletters for research purposes. The Newsletters are numbered 1 to 45 and the numbering continued with the first Journal (#46) in 1989. They are full of excellent scholarship. Most of the text was successfully captured by scanning in a searchable form but as always with old copies, some text was not clear enough to be decifered as digital text by the scanner.

Newsletters were published again between 1998 to 2008 and some are posted below. They contain a mix of association business, scholarship and comment. Starting in 2008, the Newsletter changed its name to The Meetinghouse and they are posted in section 1 above.

No complete Index to the Newsletters has been created. See #17 below for an index to the first 16 Newsletters and then the file below that which presents the Table of Contents of newsletters #18 to 45.
