Society of Friends

Quakers settled America
Quakers settled first in Maryland (from England), then moved into Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. If you have a quaker in your family, just remember that they moved around a bit, from Meeting to Meeting.  A good amount of the old records were preserved in Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy by Hinshaw. The Maryland Society of Friends' records were filmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. There are some published books in regional libraries, such as Pennsylvania Marriages (from Meeting Houses) and Minutes of the New Hopewell Meeting in Frederick County, Virginia.
