The Records of the United States Home Council of Overseas Missionary Fellowship (China Inland Mission) - Collection 215 contain much information on the individuals who went to China and other Asian countries as missionaries. One place to find this information is in the photocopies of the Canadian Council Candidate Registers (Box 17, Folders 2, 3). These registers list basic information about the missionary candidates. Most, but not all, of these forms are for Canadian candidates. The forms themselves appear to be a kind of checklist used to make sure that missionaries had handled all necessary details before leaving for China.
