New Jersey Quakers: Their History and the Records They Left (Virtual)
Sep 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
Quakers were among the earliest settlers in North America, particularly in New Jersey. Quakers were amazing record-keepers. Not only did they record births, marriages, and deaths, they kept extensive records on those who came into their local meetings and those who left. Transgressions by members of the community were publicly discussed and recorded, and as they came to believe that slavery was evil their records on Quakers who kept slaves became extensive. Learn about the history of these pioneering Americans and how to find the rich records they left behind.
