In 1978 the Mennonite Archives of Ontario received a grant from the Multi-Culture History Society of Ontario (MSR 9391 ; Microfilm #543) to travel to Mennonite congregations throughout Ontario and microfilm archival records that were made available. Rich Willms and Richard Neff were the students who undertook the project.

In some cases the microfilm duplicates paper holdings in the archives. Entries with an asterisk (*) have digital copies available.

The film is 16mm in size. Films 21-28 did not have proper exposure settings and are virtually unusable.
