Foothills Genealogical Society Meeting and Program

Event Details

Professional Genealogist Glenn York will present “Researching the American Quakers” at the Foothills Genealogical Meeting at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11
Guests are welcome to attend this free meeting and program.

Learn about the migrations of the Quakers and how the detailed records they left behind can help with genealogical research. For those with Quaker ancestors, their family records provide a wealth of information.

The religious group known as Quakers (Religious Society of Friends) came to the Pennsylvania region in the late 17th Century and spread rapidly along the East Coast. By the early 19th Century, many Quakers had migrated to the Northwest Territory and, by 1900, they had settled across the entire United States.

This presentation will cover some of the basic Quaker beliefs, the organization of their communities, their migrations and their records that can advance genealogical research.

Glenn is the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies’ delegate to the National Genealogical Society and past President of the Larimer County Genealogical Society. A member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, Glenn facilitates monthly DNA study groups for two area genealogical societies and the state-wide Advanced DNA Study Group. He teaches genealogy classes, and volunteers at a local library. He is a Co-Administrator for the BATES Y-DNA surname and the Swedish Colonial Society DNA Projects at Family Tree DNA.
