A REPOSITORY OF RESOURCES for enhancing
the research of your
QUAKER HERITAGE!

The Quaker Corner is the official repository for the QUAKER-ROOTS discussion group, a very active mailing list with over 1,200 subscribers. Many of them are helpful authorities on doing Quaker research and the Society of Friends, past and present.

This award-winning site has been on-line since August of 1995 and is part of The Gene Pool. Both sites were designed and are maintained by Joanne Todd Rabun of Eugene, Oregon for the sole purpose of sharing what she has learned about her heritage with her family, friends and other family historians. Read more about her colorful family history. She is not a member of the Society of Friends.

Many of JTR's ancestors were of the Quaker faith or closely associated with families who were members. Among them were these families: ADAMSON, ANTRIM, ANCRAM, BEALS, BLACKBURN, BOWATER, BOYES, CLAYTON, DICKS?, EDGE, HORNER, JONES, McGREW, MORTON, PARR? and ZELLEY.
