About this webinar

Successful Quaker research requires a familiarity with typical Quaker migration routes, and no two Quaker migration events are the same. This was true for the Hunt family of Burlington County, New Jersey. Once they began to move, they covered a lot of ground. Follow them from New Jersey to Virginia, Western Pennsylvania, and on to Ohio, then moving again to Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. This case study will also identify when and where the family ceased to be members of the Society of Friends.

    I have direct and collateral ancestors who were also in the Redstone/Westland/Short Creek meetings at about the same time (White, Johnson). Very helpful and thorough. I appreciate the info, thanks, as it gives me a list of specific Quaker meetings histories I can consult.

    My paternal 3x great-grandfather was born a Hunt. I was doubly pleased that was the surname followed in today’s webinar, although mine went from NJ to NC. I am most excited to join soon. I work on my children’s family history daily. Am administrator for several DNA tests as well as groups regarding what was believed to be my maiden name.

    This was a most interesting program.. If, I recall, I do have the Surname of HUNT in my tree.. May not be linked to this family though, since I am recording all ancestors, so called collateral ancestors into my tree and they come from my ex-wife’s family lineages, That I am compiling for my son. Now, several years back in time, 1990’s to 2000 about the mid 1990’s era, I did a paranormal investigate at the “PROVIDENCE MEETING HOUSE (and0 CEMETERY located outside Perryopolis, Pa. on Quaker Church Road..

    Amazing amount of incredible information for a novice in Quaker genealogy. I had no idea how much more there is to explore. Interesting that one of the last “comments” from a listener had to do with the Quaker records in Herkimer County NY where my Quaker relatives settled until the migrated to Iowa in the 1800’s. Thank you!
