Quaker Records Preview

Friends Meeting House

Enjoy this preview to Quaker Records and Migration, with 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.

The full webinar, along with handout, is always available in the Member Webinars section of the website. Several times a year, NCGS makes recorded webinars available to the public over a 3 day, free-play weekend. Watch for them on the NCGS home page under “Upcoming Events”. Available in the NCGS online store is North Carolina Research – Genealogy and Local History, the text for the NCGS Webinar Series.
