Custodial history

The Abraham Doerksen papers were passed on to surviving descendants. Jake Peters of Winnipeg, Manitoba borrowed them from Bishop Jacob Doerksen, Blumenthal, Mexico, a grandson of Bishop Abraham Doerksen, in 1982 and photocopied them for the Mennonite Heritage Centre. Other documents were collected by David and Trudy Schellenberg of Winkler for the Christian Heritage Library.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of a ledger and some loose papers. The ledger includes lists of sermons preached by Abraham Doerksen and lists of baptisms. The loose papers include correspondence, baptismal records and obituaries. The documents from the Christian Heritage Library include a book entitled "The Family Tree of Abraham Doerksen, Regina Hoeppner and Descendants", as well as writings, sermons and his certificate of baptism which exempted him from military service in World War I.
