    Thank you for your participation in this exciting project!

    Autobiographical Information


    1. The purpose of questions 9-20 is to help you create as complete as possible a personal recollection of your life and service in the Church. Your answers may be as short or as long as you wish. [Each answer box can hold up to 50 pages of text!] If you need to complete your answers over a period of time, please “send” as much as you complete at each sitting and the Project Manager will add it to material already received. You may also wish to save your answers in a document on your own computer.



    2. This form is an edited version of Service Bulletin #3b, copyright © 1998 Concordia Historical Institute, 801 DeMun Ave., St. Louis, Missouri, 63105.

      Before hitting the "submit answers" button, please type the letters you seen in the image below.



    Part 2.  Photographs

    All photographs of deaconesses or photographs related to diaconal work are welcome - regardless of their size or age, or whether they are in color or black-and-white.  If you prefer to loan your photos to the Project, we would be happy to copy the photos and return them to you within a short time.

    Your photographs may be submitted in two ways:

    1) by email to cheryl@deaconessbio.org

    2) by mail to Deaconess Biographies Project, 782 15th Street, Oakmont, PA  15139

    Whether you submit photos by email or mail, please include a separate document with as much information as possible about each photo (e.g., the names of all people in the photo; when, where, and on what occasion the photo was taken)

    Part 3.  Other Artifacts

    Any other artifacts related to you and your diaconal work are welcome.  If you are not yet ready to "part" with certain items, we are able to make copies of any paper-based artifacts. The list of artifacts that we hope to receve includes:

    • Videos, CDs, DVDs, or tape recordings of special events (e.g., commissioning, installation, anniversaries)
    • Worship bulletins and sermons (e.g., baptism, confirmation, consecration, commissioning, installation, retirement, marriage)
    • Deaconess Diplomas and Baptism or Confirmation certificates
    • Newspaper or magazine articles about you or your work in the church or community
    • Material written by you (e.g., diaries, letters, wills, speeches, printed articles, books, music, poetry, etc.)
    • Old uniforms and deaconess crosses
    • Antiquarian books related to deaconess work
    • Any other physical artifacts that are significant to you in relation to your diaconal work (e.g., a toy that you always took to visit sick children; awards; gifts from those who employed you as a deaconess)

    Biographical Information

    You may want to add material not requested in these questions, or perhaps include less material when answers are unknown or questions do not apply to a particular deaconess. Our aim is to acquire as much accurate information as possible about the life and service of each deaconess.

    If you can provide information about more than one deaconess, please complete the response box and submit separately for each woman.

    Thank you for your participation in this exciting project!
