Concordia Conference Minutes - 1900

These minutes were transcribed from the original church conference books by Angela Cassidy.

I have typed the minutes pretty much as written, sometimes inserting the notation (sic) after misspelled words
to indicate that they were typed as written. There is a great lack of punctuation and usually I typed it as
written, but when it made the content difficult to understand, I sometimes inserted punctuation. When the church
clerk wrote Concord Baptist Church, I typed it that way, and when he or she wrote it Concordia Baptist Church,
I typed it that way, too. Occasionally when someone's initials were used, I inserted the person's name in
parentheses. Likewise, when the person's name was misspelled, I have corrected it if I knew who the person
was, so that genealogists searching for their ancestors can find them.

Typist's Notes: Abbreviations commonly used at this time include: Bro. for Brother. C.C. for church clerk.
Addopt for Adopted. Mod. for Moderator.
