trying to find the birth of an Abraham cousin
« on: Saturday 03 April 21 12:22 BST (UK) »
Hi all,
I am trying to find the birth of an Abraham cousin, although surname spelling may be slightly different. Born 1711  but died and buried in Yorkshire. Abraham may have a brother Issac. The only entry although give birth in 1711 and gives his death date, there doesn't appear to be any birth records, was this normal for Quakers.
would really appreciate some kind person's knowledge on this subject, please.

“Birth of an Abraham cousin”. “May have a brother Isaac”

Was Abraham a christian name or a surname?

Quakers do not celebrate baptisms. Their records record births, marriages and deaths. The majority of these are found in the National Archives under the RG6 section, and these are accessible online through the Genealogist and Find My Past websites.
As for a burial in Yorkshire, that is a lot of ground to cover!
