Yep. Remember when the National Office was on fire a few years back?
We lost a lot of Eagle Scout information, especially those Eagles
between the late 50s and the middle 60s. While local Councils and the
Regional offices got many of those names back, when the Regions were
realigned and after the fire, there were many names, Council numbers
and dates that are missing.
In 1976 and again in 1989, the National Eagle Scout Association held a
nationwide "Eagle Scout Hunt" and encouraged local Councils to look
through their records and hold events which would bring former and
present Eagles together to shore up NESA membership records and to
update the database. We managed to find an additional 2000 Eagle
Scouts during those two years.

They can also send a copy of their Eagle Scout Card to the National
Eagle Scout Assocation, National Office BSA. DO NOT SEND THE ORIGINAL
CARD...a photocopy will do just fine. Please also send your current
mailing address (snail mail only; the National Office does NOT have
Internet outward capabilities *yet*) so that they can send you
information about NESA and about what you can do to support your local
Council (labor wise and finance wise)!
