Roger Vaughan's History Pages

Anyone researching their family history for members of the clergy may come across a reference to CMS in their studies, the Church Missionary Society. In 1899 was published The History of the Church Missionary Society by Eugene Stock, this is a very detailed, and remarkable historical account of the world-wide work of the society. I have volume three which covers the years 1873 - 1882 but sometimes gives additional information up to the publication date. It gives detailed accounts of the members missionary work, by name, so its a valuable research tool for family history research.
The most important part of this book for getting at this information is the 79 page index of places and names - I will check to see if the name you want is there - for free, but if you want the information from the book, a fee will be charged to cover my research time and not the information from the book, based on the extent of the work, in some cases photocopies will be posted by snail mail, digital images or typed summary information can be sent by email.
