Do you know these missionaries? Help identify 15 historic photographs


The Church History Library’s “Name Them” identification series continues, and this time it’s all about missionaries.

On April 6, 2021, the Church History Library shared 15 photographs of unnamed missionaries who served in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The photographs do give some clues about mission locations. One photo has a “Tasma” imprint from Newton, Sydney, Australia. Another photo identifies the missionaries as serving in the British Mission, though the missionaries are not named.

The photos contain both male and female missionaries who served in various locations around the world. The Church History Library asks that, if you can positively identify them, you use their online Ask Us service to send the name of the missionary (or missionaries) and their photograph’s number. Whenever possible, it is asked that users include a citation of their source to help with verification.
