My Ancestor was a Quaker

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd May 2018

The Religious Society of Friends began as a movement in England in the mid-17th century in Lancashire. Members are informally known as Quakers, as they were said 'to tremble in the way of the Lord'.

The Society of Friends has been influential in the history of reform. They founded, or reformed, many institutions. This includes the abolition of slavery, promoting equal rights for women, and the education and humane treatment of prisoners and the mentally ill.

In this talk, Michael Gandy looks at how one might trace Quakers in the family and how to learn more about the lives they led.

There are no special entry requirements for this talk and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists to attend. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail.

Cost: £8.00
