Hettasch Family
TitleHettasch Family
Scope and Content of FondsThe Hettasch family papers consists of a small amount of material collected and used by Paul - Hettasch and his son, Siegfried Hettasch, while serving as - Moravian missionaries in Labrador during the years 1898 to 1985 as well as church related material - collected by Siegfried during his retirement in Ontario. The bulk of - the collection consists of material used for Sunday church services: sermons, prayers, hymns and orders - of service. There is also correspondence which deals with the - history of the Moravian mission stations in Labrador, the history of the Moravians in general and some - related Labrador material. There are photographs showing - church buildings, landscapes, and portraits and a small number of postcards. There is a diary, written in - German, kept by Siegfried relating three trips he had taken: a - bicycle trip from Holland to Herrnhut, Germany; a trip to St. Anthony, and a camping trip. There are a few - items which were obviously "inherited" by Siegfried Hettasch - such as an account of the final days in Hebron in 1959 when the community was abandoned, possibly - written by an RCMP officer, and the 1841 Hebron annual report. - This collection is important to those researchers interested in Labrador history, Moravian history, aboriginal - history, built heritage, Inuktitut and German - languages, and early settlement in coastal Labrador.
