Presented by Cindy Foreman
Using examples from her own ancestry, Cindy Foreman will describe how to search records of the Religious Society of Friends.  By 1700 the Society gained considerable influence in most of the New England and middle-Atlantic colonies.  For example, in 1679 they had governmental control of New Jersey.  They formed half the population of Newport in 1700.  As you research your family history into New England, you will undoubtedly find some of your ancestors were Quakers.  Cindy will teach us how to become friends with the records of the Friends.
