In this elegant volume, published originally by the Irish Manuscripts Commission, Mrs. The bulk of this book takes the form of an inventory and synopsis of Quaker records in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It describes the holdings of a number of private collections of Quaker records housed at the Historical Library in Dublin. The records, which fall into the following categories, are annotated here and divulge, even in the abstract, a great deal of specific genealogical data: family collections, manuscript drafts, school records, diaries, will abstracts, deeds and other legal documents, portfolios, maps and plans, and various miscellaneous sources. Following the two appendixes of records pertaining to the Ulster Province Meeting and Quaker records in the PRO of Northern Ireland, researchers will find a list of surnames occurring in Irish Quaker registers and a complete name index to the more than 5,000 Irish Quakers referred to in this volume.
