Current Research Projects
Heritage Sites and Monument (HSM) Project
Retrieval of Archival Material (RAM) Project
Materials have been collected from individuals and churches such as the Odjidja family records, Rev. David Asante, Rev. T. A. Osae, Dr. Ephraim Amu, Very Rev. S.S. Odonkor, Rev. A. L. Kwansa, Rev. Prof. C. G. Baeta and the Presbyterian Church of Ghana archives. All documents have been processed and added to the library stock of books, while those of archival nature have been sent to the Carl C. Reindorf Archives Unit in the Institute to be catalogued – a finding aid is being developed for each of the collections.
In September, 2019, the Institute collected documents from two important persons. On 10th September, collections were received from the family of the Late Kwamena Poh’s library at Mamfe. On 13th September, the Institute participated in the 120th birthday anniversary celebrations of the late Ephraim Amu at Peki – Avetile. A few more of Amu’s diaries were collected on this occasion.
The Institute will continue to identify and collect documents which qualify to be stored in the archives unit from individuals, churches, para-churches, notable pastors and lay people to promote research and teaching among researchers and students.The fifteen sites include the following: Basel Mission Cemetery in Akropong, Basel Mission Cemetery in Osu, Aburi Cemetery, Christian Shrine in Abetifi, Ramseyer Training Center in Abetifi, Jamaican Well in Aburi, Alexander Worthy Clerk’s House in Aburi, Samuel Otu’s Mausoleum in Techimentia, Andreas Riis Building in Akropong, Salem’s Bell Tower – PUCG, Akropong, Sanatorium by Dr. Rudolf Fisch in Aburi, Landing Site of First Missionaries in Osu, Old Mission Building in Mayera and Osu Ebenezer Presbyterian Chapel in Osu.
