In Search of Missionaries: Tracing relatives on a mission from God

Whilst I am personally not very religious, several members of my family have worked as missionaries in the past.

On my research service blog, I discuss how I traced the careers of the Rev. William Paton, Mary Paton, and the Rev. David MacDonald Paton, as well as the missionary work that they carried out in India and China. I note many of the resources I found online, and at English based repositories such as the School of Oriental and African Studies archive in London, and the University of Birmingham archives.
