Part 15: The Church Missionary Society Record, 1830-1875, held at the Church Mission Society Library
Here we reproduce a complete run of The Church Missionary Society Record, 1830-1875. It provides very useful information for researchers wanting to learn more about the early years of CMS work, both at home and abroad. This periodical is a continuation of
The CMS Monthly Paper (see Section III, Part 10). It is divided in the following manner:
- Home Proceedings: This includes material on work in the home districts, biographies, ordinations and news on the departure of missionaries overseas.
- Foreign Intelligence: This material is subdivided into mission areas and provides news from the field.
- Recent Intelligence: This provides up-to-date news of missionaries, including deaths, births, furloughs, arrivals and departures.
Each volume contains an index of names and places and a detailed contents page ensuring easy reference for researchers.
