About this webinar

America was and is a landing place for many ethnic groups and religions. The Quakers were one of those groups, and were among the most influential. Quaker roots begin in England. Soon the Society of Friends found themselves at odds with much of the surrounding area, leading them to other European countries and America. With emphasis on the Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Ohio Quakers, this  presentation will aid you in looking for clues as to whether your ancestors were Friends.

    I learned so much. Thank you!

    I liked that she gave us the history to understand how the formation of the religion would change how we searched records and where to look!

    I thought I already knew about Quakers but I learned so much more. Excellent syllabus too.

    I thought i knew a fair amount for a non-Quaker, but Peggy showed me new stuff.

    I’d give it 10, if I could! I just love Miss Peggy…she is so much fun and interesting to listen to! I always, always learn something new and she makes me laugh! She is by far, my favorite!

    I’m not sure I have Quakers in my ancestry, and I knew very little about them, so this was interesting and I learned a lot!

    It was greater than Excellent!

    It was informative history-wise and genealogy-wise!

    Just awesome!

    Knowledge, organization, presentation and appropriate references. It couldn’t have been better.

    Learned a lot about the Quakers. Thanks

    Learned a LOT!

    Learned so much to help me with my research. Thanks.

    Love Peggy’s webinars and in person a conferences.
    Loved the migration information.

    Loved the migrations maps! It helped me to understand how some of my ancestors and their families started in Pennsylvania and then ended up in Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee. I think this may help me to find more information on my family! Thanks so much!

    LOVED this presentation. Especially her suggestion that we “walk where they walked”.

    Miss Peggy another great webinar. Thank You so Much. Thanks Legacy and Geoff for all the wonderful webinars you all put together
