Many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints served as missionaries for their faith. Various records exist that document their service and provide genealogical information. Some of the resources available for research are:

  • The Early Church Information File (cited fully on the "Biography") indexes many early missionary records. The microfilmed missionary records are no longer available in the Family History Library. The records are now available only at the Church History Library.
  • The National Archives of Australia Website has an interesting resource listing "Mormon missionaries - Desirous of proceeding to Australia". If you enter the word "Mormon" into the keyword search box it will bring up the link to look at a record of correspondence between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Australian government.
