INDEX to the Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy 1750-1930 by William Wade Hinshaw.
DearREADERS, "Totally thrilled" describes my feelings as I received my copy of the index to our library's copy of William Wade Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy 1750-1930. This past summer I discovered I have Welsh and English Quaker ancestry in Chester County, PA. (Merion on the Welsh Tract.) Prior to this I'd had no personal experience doing Quaker Research.
When I asked others about Quaker Research, they raved about Mr. Hinshaw's six volume compilation of Friend's Monthly Meeting records listing births, deaths, marriages and removals. That last term refers to entries in the church books when Society of Friends members moved from one area to another. They were removed from the old Monthly Meeting membership in order to join the new group.
We're fortunate to have Mr. Hinshaw's complete set of Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy at our local public library. As I uncover new names to research, I'll be turning again and again to Henshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy.
From the publisher: "William Wade Hinshaw's renowned Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, originally published between 1936 and 1950. Containing approximately 500,000 entries.. each volume ha[s] a separate surname index..."
"Almost no class of records, religious or secular, has been kept as meticulously as the monthly meeting records of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The oldest such records span three centuries of American history and testify to a general movement of population that extended from New England and the Middle Atlantic states southward to Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia; then west to Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.

Great resource. Wish I had this index when I started my genealogy research, it would have saved alot of time. If you have Quaker's in you genealogy, this is a must have. This index is for all the "Encyclopedia American Quaker Genealogy" by Wade Hinshaw and saves alot of time because the Hinshaw records are index only by last name, where this index list first and last name. Think of the time saved when looking for names like Jane Smith. Because without the index you have to look on all pages in all the books with the name Smith for Jane.

Excellent index to source data for genealogical data for persons of the Society of Friends (Quakers) for this set of 6 encyclopedia. It saves time in searching each of the six volumes.
