The web page of the Moravian Archives, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The Moravian Archives is the repository of the records of Moravian Church, Southern Province, and its members. As such, the Moravian Archives' primary function is to serve the Church in the collecting, cataloging, and safekeeping of its records. Our records extend back to 1753, the beginning of Moravian Church in North Carolina, and give a detailed account of life in earlier times as well as family histories of church members.This web site is fully supported by Friends of Moravian Archives.
