Researching Your Quaker Ancestors
The Quakers or Society of Friends is another religious group that took issue with the Church of England and participated in the founding of America. Most notable among them, perhaps, is William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. This year marks the 325th anniversary of Penn's arrival in America. An informative article by Gena Philibert-Ortega on "Researching Your Quaker Ancestors" provides considerable useful information and online resources for this select group.
