HISTORY/BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH: Robertson United Church was formed in Edmonton in1925 upon the creation of The United Church of Canada through the union of Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational denominations.

CUSTODIAL HISTORY:Records deposited under accession number PR1975.0387 were acquired sometime prior to 1975 however there is no surviving record of the details. In 1975, the Conference entered into a permanent loan agreement with the Provincial Archives of Alberta (PAA) for the physical custody and control of the holdings of the Conference Archives and the records were relocated to the PAA in that same year. Records received after 1975 have come from the congregation, church members, or officers of the presbytery or the Conference.
