Join us as Pennsylvania genealogist and Quaker records expert Kay Haviland Freilich and Ann Wetherill Upton, Librarian of Quaker Special Collections at Haverford College present a webinar designed to help you discover your Quaker ancestors.
Vital events. Wedding guests. Migrations. Lifestyles. Family groups. Patriotism. Quaker records offer researchers a treasure trove of information about ancestors. Knowledge of the record-keeping practices of the Society of Friends, what they recorded, and why, will help today’s researchers unlock all these facts and many more.
Finding Pennsylvania Quaker records seems to be as challenging as finding Quaker ancestors; however, this presentation will show how the search can be straightforward and much easier. Participants will learn the tools and strategies for identifying which records will give them the information they need. Finding the location of those records and how to gain access to them, remotely and in person, will also be clearly explained. The exciting future of research in Quaker records will also be discussed as easy and reliable retrieval is in sight.
