The collection contains records relating to the activities of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa's Canon Law Council. There are legal documents, diocesan reports, minutes of the meetings and correspondence.
Canon Law regulates the internal ordering of the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox and the Anglican Communion. Canon Law is amended and adopted by the legislative authority of the church, such as councils of bishops, individual bishops, the Pope for the Catholic Church, and the British Parliament for the Church of England. In South Africa Canon Law is an Amalgam of Roman-Dutch Civil Law and English Common Law, as well as the Customary Law. Bishops and church leaders should know how to respect and uphold Canon Law and the regulations of the church in all forms. Canon Law should be included in training of the clergy.
This Index provides a listing of the digitised Registers of the Anglican Church in Southern Africa, which are now available on DVDs and on the website of the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They cover the years 1850-2004 and include baptism, marriage and burial records.
The Anglican Church in South Africa itself was originally organised in four provinces, namely the Diocese of the Cape of Good Hope, Diocese of Natal, Diocese of the Orange Free State and the Diocese of Transvaal. These provinces were later divided into more Dioceses. The records on the website of the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been arranged according to the original four Provinces. The records on the DVDs are arranged as listed.
