Hello Andrea,

I would love to be part of the Quaker connection. Trying to get into the Quaker Society, Harlan is there. My line is with Jonathan Harlan-305. His daughter Mary Harlan was married to William Vogan. Harlans were Quakers and also Vogan. I am also in the DAR because of marriage. My brick wall is from William Vogan/John Vogan

Hi Andrea,

I have not been an active participant in the Quaker Project but I have several early ancestors who were active in the Society of Friends. I use the stuff on Ancestry but am not a fan of theirs. I am on a fixed in income and use the Library Edition. I am active in the Genealogy Bloggers Facebook group since my website is very active and we post there every 3 months. Janice Webster Brown is the Administrator of that group. Here job is as an employee at Swathmore and I do not know the details but she has something to do with the archives. Janice hates Ancestry. Would you object to my doing a little investigating and seeing we at Wikitree could start working with them more closely and if not cut Ancestry loose be a little less independent of them? If not please U do so.
