Started by Dutch settlers as the First Reformed Church of Chicago, this still-active Berwyn, Illinois, church recorded its minutes in Dutch until 1929. The collection consists mainly of books of minutes from 1853 to 1938. It also contains certificates for baptism, confirmation, and other church functions, as well as correspondence and a report. Most documents are in Dutch.
