About the Book

Known for their passive stance against war, an involvement in social reform initiatives, and having a simple or “plain” appearance, the Quakers have been part of American history since before the formation of our country.

In Researching Your Quaker Family History, you will find tips, tricks, and information relating to the structure of the Society of Friends meetings, the records that they produced and how you can use them to learn more about your family. Additional resources include timelines, terminology lists, and resources for genealogy research both online and in repositories.

This guide is specially designed with the family history researcher in mind. The small size and simple organization will make this pocket guide easy to use on-site or at home.
