Quaker Family History Society

for family historians with Quaker ancestors from the British Isles

  Home Contents Membership Research Events Journal

  The Quaker Family History 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 in the British Isles. We are based in Britain, so do not claim any expertise on the history of Quakers outside Britain.

  Although we are not a Quaker organisation, we are a recognised external body for the purposes of Britain Yearly Meeting (of the Society of Friends). QFHS membership is open to anyone interested in the history of British or Irish Quakers, whether they themselves are members or attenders of the Society of Friends, or non-members with no personal connection.

Our members include:
  • Family historians with Quaker ancestors
  • Friends with an interest in history, including that of their local meeting
  • Those who wish to learn about their British Quaker ancestors

Members receive:

  • three issues of our Journal, Quaker Connections a year
  • a chance to meet others with similar interests at our AGM in central London in June or July, and at one-day meetings, which are held in the Spring and Autumn at various locations
