Missing Friends records

Surnames H - O

There are several different series of 'Missing Friends' records, all of which are superb for family history, with historical background and/or biographical details and physical descriptions. Many records also say when/where the subject was found (or last seen), what alias he/she used, etc, and usually the enquirer's name/address. There are records for:

  • People sought (for many reasons) by relatives or friends.
  • Runaway children (including eloping daughters).
  • People missing and suspected of being mentally ill.
  • Wife / child deserters.
  • Women who abandoned a child.
  • Fathers of illegitimate children.
  • Absconders from reformatories or from employment.
  • Missing beneficiaries of wills.
  • Suspected bigamists.
  • People sought as witnesses to a crime.
  • Various other missing persons.

Explanation of names below:

  • Most were born in the United Kingdom, Ireland, western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, USA or Canada.
  • Some people 'disappeared' decades before the Missing Friend record was created. These names are from records created between 1894 and 1955.
  • This is an ongoing indexing project, with about 8,000 names yet to be added (click this button to be notified):

  • Names are from five (5) different series of records.
  • Abbreviations:  b. = born;  Chapman County Codes are used for States/countries.
  • Scroll through the list. Many names were spelled incorrectly in the records.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'SULLIVAN.
  • If there are several entries for a name, investigate them all. They may be for the same person or for different people with the same name.
  • For names below, I can supply copies of the original records (this link leads to instructions).
  • See also 'Other suggestions' (below 'Copying Service').

Copying service. Allow several weeks for a reply (I am often away for family reasons).

As a professional genealogist, I've spent thousands of hours indexing original records, and it also takes time to travel to a record office, order a bundle/volume, find the relevant file/page, order photocopies or take digital photos, and send them to you; so I charge fees for these services:

Option 1:  If you want me to copy the original document, my fee is $12 for one entry plus $5 for each additional entry requested at the same time. If the same name is listed (above) twice, that is two entries. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).

Option 2:  I will (for a fee of $5 per SURNAME) provide source references (the record office, its location number for the source, a page number if applicable, and approximate date) so you can do the work yourself. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).
