October Monthly Meeting

 

Finding Friends: Researching Your Quaker Ancestors

Featuring Jacob Eubanks, St. Louis County Library, assistant manager, History & Genealogy Dept.

Saturday, 8 October 2022, 10:00 a.m.

Please Note: This meeting will be held at the Thornhill branch of the St. Louis County Library. A link to a Google map with directions is below.

 

Quakers, officially known as the Religious Society of Friends, are one of the earliest denominations to settle in North America, and their records are among the most detailed. Although a relatively small denomination today, if you have colonial mid-Atlantic or midwestern ancestors, chances are good some were Quakers. Learn how to find your “friends” during this exploration of Quaker records.
