Have you tried HINSHAW's? If not, any LARGE library will be able to help you. It's the dates for births/deaths/marriages and for folks who married out of the Quaker faith. It will also have a page on each one of the Meeting houses. Well, worth your investigating. You'll be able to trace your ancestors when you see the abbreviations rcf and rct(?) which mean received certificate from and request certificate to.

Faithful members of the Quakers would receive certificates as they moved westward to show they were members in good standing and would present them to the new meeting house. You will also see "mou" married out of unity and then they are dropped but if they "con"(? it's late and that abbreviation may be off but HINSHAW's HAS a complete list of the abbreviations) they have condemned their own behavior and were accepted back into the faith.

HINSHAW's and HEISS are invaluable sources for Quaker Research. Some libraries even have an index to all the volumes so you can see how many are listed and try to figure out which one is yours.

Good Luck
