Guilford , A Quaker Education

I find reflecting on my earliest contact with quaker’s very enlightening and the primary reason for me seeking them later in my life. After relocating to Las Vegas in 1984 my journey led me home to Guilford College and the friends there who helped me understand the meaning of what it was to be a quaker. So it was only natural that I seek them here in Las Vegas Nevada. Our meeting is Unprogrammed and very basic with refreshments at rise of meeting. I remember speaking to a janitor at Guilford College who was a conscientious objector and birthright quaker. I was later informed that he had a Phd In Philosophy. His penance was to do janitorial work at the college. What a noble endeavor.

    I am looking for help with my genealogy. I am finding a large amount of relatives in Quaker records and buried in the Friends cemeteries. Do you know of a website for Quaker Genealogy
    Thanking you in advance,

    • regretfully, I do not know of one such space, but you could check out the Religious Society of Friends on facebook and ask your question there, they might have more information that I do at the moment. But if I do come across anything I will let you know.
