A recent conversation I had touched on Quaker records. The question asked was if I had ever done Quaker Research? Surprisingly, I hadn’t! It’s hard to believe that many of my ancestors go back to before Pennsylvania was a state and only a colony. So how can my family not have somehow evolved out of the Quaker settlements is something I need to do more research on in my personal tree. The more I thought about that question the more I decided to do some research. What I found are some helpful videos, research guide, and some great links from where to begin. The videos were originally posted by ancestry.com and wonderfully walked through by Crista Cowan. – Have Fun!
