Quaker Records and Migration

Craig R. Scott, CG, FUGA

This webinar will examine the creation of Quaker records and their meaning for the researcher. The reasons for migration and migration patterns before and after the Revolutionary War will also be explored. North Carolina, prior to the Revolution, was a destination. As slavery became more of an issue for Quakers, North Carolina was the major source of out migration.
