Researching Our Roots

The downloadable document found here was researched and assembled by Bob Chisholm in 2019, with a lot of help from friends at Jubilee, as he writes in the opening credits.

After an introduction about Don Mills and its churches in the 1950's and 1960's, there is a deeper dive into the history of each of the United Church congregations that amalgamated to form present-day Jubilee - Victoria Village United Church, Donminster United Church, Bethesda United Church and St. John's United Church. Some of this history traces as far back as the middle of the 1800's.
