Scope and Content

The material in this collection contains two basic elements. The predominant one is sermon notes written by Wilhelm Falk in his capacity as minister. The sermons do not have dates on them so it is difficult to know when and where they were used. The second kind of material is correspondence to Falk. Some church minutes also exist in the collection. Most of the material is in German, some of the correspondence is in English.
