Description

This presentation recounts the researcher's quest to find forgotten stories in Adventist history, using online archives. After a brief survey of early findings in local churches, current issues, and family history, the talk narrows in on recent discoveries about Merritt G. Kellogg and Jennie L. Ireland. Dr. Kellogg was the first Adventist to preach in California, and a pioneer in mission expansion. Miss Ireland was the first person to start a successful Black Adventist church west of the Mississippi, and mentor to a generation of Black Adventist leaders. The presentation illustrates how archives can shape our sense of identity through the stories waiting to be told.
