Where Did Hinshaw Put
Those Quaker Records?

A Simplified Index to the 6-Volumes
of
"The Encyclopedia of
American Quaker Genealogy"

William Wade Hinshaw, Author and Publisher
Published by the Genealogical Publishing Co., 1960-1973

The greatest source of information for anyone doing research on their Quaker ancestors is Hinshaw's six volume set, the "Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy." The volumes are identified by state, but this is often misleading.

Vol. I

North Carolina (includes NC, TN, SC, one VA)

Vol. II

Pennsylvania (includes NJ, some PA)

Vol. III

New York (NY and LI)

Vol. IV

Ohio (some OH, some PA, MI)

Vol. V

Ohio (some OH)

Vol. VI

Virginia (most all VA)

Separate sets of records were diligently kept by both the Mens' and Womens' Meetings, making our Quaker ancestors fairly easy to research. They kept records for everything -- births, deaths, marriages, disownments and, best of all, whenever they transferred from one meeting to another. This makes it relatively easy to trace migration paths. Unfortunately, Hinshaw found it necessary to include New Jersey records in the Pennsylvania book and Tennessee records in the North Carolina book. There's even a Virginia Meeting that's not in the Virginia book!

The following index was prepared to take the confusion out of your day at the Genealogy Library. Print this out and take it with you. Share it with your fellow Quaker researchers. Have fun!
