- Synaxis of the Saints of North America (oca.org) - An brief but excellent survey of many of the Saints who have shown forth in North America.
- Orthodox Christians in North America, 1794-1994 (oca.org) - This now classic narrative history, written for the Bicentennial of Orthodoxy in North America by Mark Stokoe and Fr. Leonid Kishkovsky, traces the spread of Orthodoxy from the humble monastic missionaries (including St Herman of Alaska and the Monk-Martyr Juvenaly) of 1794 to the immigrant faithful from the traditional Orthodox lands, up through the twentieth century. Online version features easy to navigate table of contents with chapter links.
- All The Saints of North America (asna.ca) - An outstanding library of links from All Saints of North America Orthodox Church (OCA) in Hamilton, Ontario, featuring all the OCA resources (lives, icons, troparia), plus many additional articles about and by these holy saints and righteous ones.
