Mennonite Archival Image Database

September 22, 2015

The Mennonite Archival Image Database (MAID), launched in March 2015 after two years of design and development, provides online access to thousands of images from Mennonite archives across Canada.  Visitors to the website can search, view, and order images for non-commercial use.  At its launch, MAID held over 80,000 descriptions of photos and over 9,000 images and has continued to grow over its first seven months.  Initiated by the Mennonite Historical Society of Canada, the project is a collaborative approach involving partners in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.  The Plett Foundation is a proud partner and supporter of this innovative project.  Visit to explore this exciting new resource!
