Quaker records and more

The Religious Society of Friends (usually known as the Quakers) was formed in the 17th century and is known for the meticulous records kept of the births, marriages and deaths of its members. Family historians who discover connections with the organisation are indeed fortunate.

As well as the Quaker registers of key life events which can be consulted on the Ancestry website, a vast array of books, journals, manuscript and visual resources can be found at the Library of the Society of Friends, which is close to Euston station in central London.

Quaker Strongrooms is a well-illustrated blog which reports on many aspects of the material kept by the Library and the efforts made to conserve and make them more readily available to researchers.

The Quaker Family History Society, which is one of our members, aims to help those with an interest in the history of Quaker families in the British Isles. Those who join Quaker FHS receive copies of its journal "Quaker Connections" and opportunities to meet fellow enthusiasts at its meetings.
