Quaker Family History Society

for family historians with Quaker ancestors from the British Isles

  Home Contents Membership Research Events Journal


The Society was formed in 1993 and is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies. Our aim is to encourage and assist anyone interested in tracing the history of Quaker families, particularly in Britain and Ireland. We are based in Britain, so do not claim any expertise on the history of Quakers in America. We do of course welcome any members who have an interest in British or Irish Quakers.  

We are a not a Quaker organisation and membership is open to anyone who is interested in British or Irish Quakers. Our members include

  • Family Historians with Quaker ancestors
  • Friends (Quakers) with an interest in history, including that of their local Meeting.
  • Those who wish to learn about their British or Irish Quaker ancestors

One-day Meetings

In addition to our June Annual General Meeting and talk in central London, we organise two regional one-day meetings. You will have the opportunity to hear talks on research methods and family histories, the chance to meet others with similar interests, browse the bookstall and members' displays.

Quaker Connections

Our journal, Quaker Connections, is published three times a year, and contains details of members' researches, book reviews and events. Back issues are available from the Membership Secretary.

Members' Interests

A Members' Interests Directory listing families being researched by members was first published in June 1995, with the most recent edition in 2005. Each issue of Quaker Connections also contains details of new members' interests.
