Description

In the 17th and 18th centuries, Friends kept records of the births and deaths of members only. If a child was born to two Quakers in good standing at the time of the birth they were considered "birthright." On the other hand, Quaker burial grounds were not generally select. Non-members could be interred in Friends' grounds.
