Free Access to Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy

+11 votes
I want to verify that certain ancestors were members of a meeting. In some cases I want to verify which meeting they were a member of. In other situations I want to determine at which point they left the Religious Society of Friends, and why they did so.

I think Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy is the best one stop source. I am particularly interested in Volume 1.

Most importantly, I am looking for FREE access. Is there such a thing? Thanks for any help with this.

There is a WikiTree Free Space page for this source: Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy

It includes the HathiTrust links and a Table of Contents to all six volumes, plus Vol. 7 for Indiana. There are also links to the Index, Unindexed Names, and related information.

It does not include links to the missing volumes 4 & 5.

Hi Susan,

Yes!  Volume 1 of Hinshaw is available through at;view=1up;seq=19.  Volumes 1-3 and 6 are online, but 4 and 5 are search only (at 

Would love to find 4 & 5 somewhere for free - if anyone knows.

I love these too.

This is a bit different than Hinshaw - it's an index as well as links to resources.
