Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806301783, Paperback)

Painstakingly developed from monthly meeting records, Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy is the magnum opus of Quaker genealogy. In its production thousands of records were located and abstracted into a uniform and intelligible system of notation. The data gathered in the several volumes of the Encyclopedia is arranged by meeting, then alphabetically by family name, and chronologically thereunder. And each of the prodigious volumes is indexed. All six volumes of the Encyclopedia have been out of print for a number of years, so it is with pleasure that we announce the re-publication of Volume I, covering the oldest meetings in North Carolina. The North Carolina volume is complete in itself for the thirty-three monthly meetings of the Carolinas and Tennessee which were part of the North Carolina Yearly Meeting. The records consist of every item of genealogical value, including births, marriages, deaths and minutes of proceedings, grouped together for each meeting by families, in alphabetical order, and covering the period from 1680 through the early 1930s. The minutes relating to certificates of removal are numerous and of great genealogical interest, as they give evidence either of membership in a previous monthly meeting or membership in a new meeting, thus enabling genealogists to trace Quaker ancestors from one place to another.
