|Foreign Missionary Index|
This database indexes the foreign missionary personnel files held by the Society. The personnel files document foreign missionaries who served from the mid 1880s through the present, although most of the files document missionaries who served Presbyterian denominations before 1983.
Personnel files maintained by the following denominations are included:
Content of the personnel files indexed by the database varies. Files may contain missionary application forms, "Candidate Reference Blanks," "Missionary Profiles," school records, photographs, incoming and outgoing correspondence, medical and financial records, obituaries, and/or other printed material. Society staff may add new material to these files as it is received.
Due to the denomination's access policy and personal privacy issues, some medical, educational, or personnel records found in the files of living persons may be restricted. Society staff will review the contents and may remove certain records before providing access to the files.
