Quaker History

Thought I would share this link

Might be useful to researchers and there were a few facts I will admit to not knowing!

The guys on the Eneclann stall at WDYTYA Live told me that the Irish Quaker records are going online in June. Anyone else hear this or know where to look?

Eneclann are partners with FindMyPast so I suspect that is where any Irish Quaker records will go.

Thank you.

If I read that right JC could be called a Quaker , as he rejected the systematic church, and set about as an evangelist.  8)

One of the difficulties I am finding in doing my family history is this reluctance or exclusion of Quakers for ''organised religion'' and the lack of , or difficulty , in accessing records.

So the news that at least the Irish records are going online gives me hope that somewhere down the track others may go online.

I have looked on Archive but downloading over 300 ''monthly meeting'' records didn't seem like a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  ;D

Hi willsy,  Thanks for this site.  Is there a site for Quakers in early Tasmania, Australia.
Searching for a Mrs Eleanor ASCOUGH nee Harrison born 1807 Yorkshire England who visited quaker relatives in Tasmania from 1863 to 1865. Trying to discover who she stayed with in Tasmania. Can anyone help
Regards
