Dates of existence



Heritage Alive was a federally funded project that had the purpose of working with retired church people through British Columbia, to seek out records, historical papers, and minutes of the United Church and its founding churches, and to list where they were located or to obtain them for BC Conference Archives to fill gaps. Another purpose was to record on tape the experiences, reflections, and anecdotes of retired people who had been active in their church and communities. A group called the “History Seekers” was formed to undertake this project, with the Rev. Lawrence G. Sieber as its chair. The project began late in 1974 and ended in 1979.
