THE QUAKER COLLECTION
SIGNIFICANT EARLY QUAKER LINES
Search the Collection
The Quaker Collection contains hundreds of Family Group Sheets with a wealth of
genealogical data on some of the major families covered as well as their interrelationships.
Only a fraction of the information is accessible directly from The Quaker Collection page.
Hundreds of members of the smaller Quaker families are mentioned as well.
There is not an "everyname" index to this material. To browse the material, we suggest
using the Spouse Index. To really mine for nuggets you may search for non-indexed names
here across the entire website.
PicoSearch™ will ONLY SEARCH THIS SITE for the data
you select. Use one of the major commercial search engines like Yahoo or
Lycos to search the entire Internet.
Simply type a few words describing what you are
looking for in the open box above. Then just click the 'Search'
button – a page will appear with any matches including the
links to direct you to the appropriate page.
||Try the full name:
"Firstname Middlename Lastname" in quotes as your first
||Do not enter
"Firstname Lastname" in quotes, because if our record
includes the middle name, then the search engine will skip
over that page. Instead use Lastname Firstname
without quotes to search without a middle
name. If you are certain that the individual did not have a middle
name then this restriction would not apply.|
"Meeting Name MM" in quotes, to find the appropriate entry
for a Monthly Meeting in the lists of Meetings by State. Of course, you
would also find any people in the Collection whose Family Group Sheet
mentions that Meeting.|
A sequence of words not
within double quotes specifies implicitly (an 'OR') and PicoSearch™
will retrieve the best documents that match the query by weighting
the results. There is no need to include a logical 'AND' or '+'. If
all the words are found in the documents, that document will be
weighted higher than a document which contains only a couple of
those words. PicoSearch™ uses a 'Fuzzy-Match' algorithm,
which gives weight to all of the words that are searched for.
