Birth, death and marriage records, 1721-1783
Births, Death, and Marriages
In the 17th and 18th centuries, Friends generally kept records of the births and deaths only of members. If a child was born to two Quakers in good standing at the time of the birth they were considered "birthright." This item also includes some copies of marriage certificates.
