The Mission, which was established in May 1835, has an extensive collection of records and archives which could be of interest to social historians and family researchers. You may also like to refer to the History section of our website.
Where academic or professional researchers use our material, we ask that they supply us with a copy of their findings, which we may freely use for our own (not-for-profit) purposes.
The key elements of the archives are:
LCM Magazine (1836 onwards) including much material from missionaries' daily journals and annual reports
LCM Magazine Indexes 1836 - 1899
LCM Annual Reports (1835 onwards)
Minutes of the LCM Committee (weekly meetings from 1835)
Family history related e.g. Register of Missionaries
Unpublished annual reports of individual missionaries, autobiographical accounts, etc.
