An intensive project between Haverford, Swarthmore, Guilford, and Earlham Colleges and Ancestry.com worked to make Quaker records at these institutions more accessible to a broad audience. Over the course of several years of scanning microfilm and original documents, more than 7 million specifically Quaker records are available on Ancestry.com. The records are available through regular searching on Ancestry.com, as well as being browsable. This guide will show how to do both of these kinds of work.
If you are on the campus of one of the four Colleges mentioned, you should be able to access Ancestry.com through their online catalog. See the link below for access from Haverford, Bryn Mawr, or Swarthmore Colleges.
If you are a member of one of these campuses (student, faculty, staff) you can access this website when you are off campus by using the e-proxy link when you go to the links below.
If you are not on our campuses, or a member of one of these campuses, you can subscribe individually to Ancestry.com, or, often a local public or university libraries have subscriptions available to their members.
While there are at least 76 collections with Quaker collections in Ancestry.com, here is a highlight of the commonly used resources on Haverford College's campus:
