Quaker Meeting Records

DearREADERS,
Ol' Myrt here has been working through her genealogy mailing list postings. It's so frustrating when folks just take someone else's word for it, as with online lineage databases. Quaker meeting records have been chronicled in a variety of sources including:

-- William Wade Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy

-- Albert Cook Myers' Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, 1682-1750 with Their Early History in Ireland (in CD only now that the book is out-of-print.)

-- Albert Cook Myers' Quaker Arrivals at Philadelphia 1682-1750 Being a List of Certificates of Removal Received at Philadelphia Monthly Meeting of Friends (in book format)

Help in researching Quaker records can be found from a variety of sources such as:

-- Ellen & David Berry's Our Quaker Ancestors: Finding Them in Quaker Records

The four items referenced above are available at www.genealogical.com or at larger genealogical libraries.

Consider also:

-- Friends Historical Library at Swarthmore College http://www.swarthmore.edu/Library/friends/1_main.htm New Digital Website - "Friends Historical Library, along with their consortial partners at Haverford and Bryn Mawr, has completed the initial phase of a project to digitize our rich collection of visual images. Led by the Quaker Collection at Haverford with a grant from the SNAVE Foundation, this digital Library is now available. Friends Historical Library is open on Monday through Friday, 8:30-4:30. They are also open on Saturday mornings, 10:00-1:00, when the College is in session."

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt      :)
