This book is designed to help researchers to understand more about their early Quaker ancestors and covers the first 200 years of their existence. The early Quakers had a unique way of speaking, of dressing, of doing business. Their church structure was unlike any other religion, before or after. They refused to take up arms, against anyone, for any reason. They believed that men and women are equal, and that all races and nationalities are equal as God's children. They believed that everyone should be educated and thus welcomed all children to their schools, in a time when the children of slaves and American Indians and even female children were excluded from most schools. You will not only learn about the kinds of records they kept, but it is my hope that you will gain an understanding and appreciation for these honored ancestors. Although the early Quakers lived over 300 years ago, by reading their meeting minutes, we can learn much about the difficulties they faced and their successful pattern for living lives of personal restraint and quiet testimony. Their choices are often misinterpreted by modern generations, but their decisions were mostly guided by love--love of their family and friends, their religious convictions, the scriptures, and the Lord. They were Christians of the highest devotion.
