“Moravian Trails and Records” Eighteenth-century Moravians, originating in Pennsylvania, settled in North Carolina. Discover the records they left behind in both states. And it will surprise you: manumissions, diaries, letters, and journals reference not just church members but others who they often interacted with. The history of the Moravians is also the history of Bethlehem, Nazareth, and other Pennsylvania cities, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina which were all church settlements. Interactions with slaves and Native Americans are documented through their records. See how to access these unique documents. Meeting are free and open to the public; but everyone is welcome to join ($10/year) for special members-only events.
