Quaker Ancestry -— A new resource for family historians

Please find enclosed a two-sided information leaflet about a recent publication relating to Quaker ancestry that may be of interest to members of your Society. At a time when there is a scarcity of printed research material for family historians with an interest in Quaker relatives, this is proving to be an important and much welcomed publication.

The title is People and Places noted in the Large and Small Notebooks 1773-1821 of Joseph Wood (1750-1821) A Yorkshire Quaker. It is a compilation of the 4,157 names of People he met and 2,760 places that he visited during the forty-eight years of his countrywide travelling ministry. In addition to the names of the people he frequently included family members, place of residence and employment.

As the use of the names within the compilation is in conjunction with the five volumes of the printed Transcription of Wood’s writings a word searchable CD of the Transcription is also supplied

The price of £10:00 plus p&p for the book and the CD is possible as the publication received financial support from the Quaker Family History Society.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries regarding the book, the CD, availability or if you would like additional copies of the leaflet.
Yours sincerely

Pamela Cooksey
