History of the BeachyAM.org Website

The BeachyAM.org website started May 2005 to serve as a collecting place for unpublished and rare Beachy Amish-Mennonite writings, with an emphasis on scholarly research. As the site grew, visitors often expressed interest in basic, introductory material about the Beachy Amish-Mennonites. Some also expressed an interest in locating a Beachy Amish-Mennonite church (or similar plain Anabaptist congregation) to visit. Thus, the a second purpose emerged, to provide basic information about the Beachy Amish-Mennonite, including the location of a nearby Beachy Amish-Mennonite or other plain Anabaptist church. The first church request was answered in December of 2005. Meanwhile, the collection of resources and papers continued to grow, and is today the most extensive collection of Beachy Amish-Mennonite writings on the internet. In 2007, the present web design was adopted. In late 2013, the basic design was reworked modestly to improve navigation and display. The site continues to conduct research for people interested in locating a plain church to visit.
