Profile of a Quaker - Finding a Friend in Colonial America with Steven Morrison
Ancestry believes that about half of the U.S. population with an ancestor living in or moving through the Mid-Atlantic region between 1680 and 1780 had at least one Quaker ancestor! The profile of a member of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, can be as distinctive as a fingerprint with their unique ethnic origin, belief system, marriage practices, and separate record structure. This session will teach you the profiling techniques you'll need to spot a Quaker in colonial America. Registration is required; call 360-475-9172 or visit the Genealogy Center.

Overcoming the Boulders on the Way to the Cemetery - DAR Real Daughters with Jerri McCoy
A few years ago I worked on a special project for the Daughters of the American Revolution - locating and documenting the burial places for 767 special members called DAR Real Daughters, whose fathers were actually in the Revolutionary War. As a result of that project, I became familiar with many boulders in my path on the way to the cemetery. My hope is that you are not stopping with the death date and location for the people in your family history, but where possible, are taking the next logical step to find their final resting place. The methods I used to get around these boulders during this project are presented because they might be helpful to you, as genealogists, as you research your own families.
