Hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brian K. Wilbert, Archivist for the Diocese of Ohio
History is a prologue to the Future! Join the Rev. Dr. Brian Wilbert, Archivist for the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio, for a “how to” workshop exploring the value and necessity of setting up and maintaining a parish archive. We’ll explore questions like: What should be kept? What gets thrown away? Paper versus Electronic imaging? What to do with parish record books and photographs? There will be time for Q&A.

Brian has served as Diocesan Archivist since 2013 but was bitten by the Archive bug during his college days (1978 – 1982). He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Kenyon College, a Master of Divinity Degree in Theology from the Bexley Hall Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from the Seabury Western Theological Seminary. He retired from Christ Church, Oberlin in 2018 after a 23 year stint as Rector and is currently serving as Interim at Grace Church, Sandusky, Ohio. Brian lives with his spouse, Yorki and their seven year old Rescue Jack Russell Terrier, “Sancho Panza” in Oberlin where they are restoring a home built as Oberlin’s first Duplex in 1875 by a “Cheese Farmer”! In his spare time Brian enjoys genealogy, the history of recorded music, and tinkering on his 1923 Model T Ford.
