How can I find former missionaries that served in an area?

Postby pzells » Sun Nov 25, 2012 7:37 am

Is there a database of former missionaries and where they served? A member in my stake wants to find the missionaries that baptized him in Florida in 1969. I would like to help him out. I tried to find this missionary using non-church methods like Facebook, Spokeo, Whitepages.com but no luck. Does anyone know a better way to find these missionaries?

Thanks

One possible source is http://mission.net -- some of the mission sites are maintained better than others, and there's no guarantee that any particular missionary is on the mission's alumni list, and very few of the missions have records that go all the way back to the 1960s, but you might get lucky.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Call Church headquarters. They should have the listing of who did the baptism on the record.

Church HQ no longer gives out information such as this.

On Facebook, did you just search for his name, or did you look for a mission Facebook group? I'd suggest asking around in mission Facebook groups to see if anyone has a connection. I'm guessing it would have been the Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission in the 1960s, if it was in Miami (mentioned next to your username).
