Just two days ago I mentioned that Irish Quaker records were on their way...

FindMyPast Ireland has uploaded a great package of Irish Quaker records:

Irish Quaker migration records: This collection includes more than 16,000 migration records. You can find out if your family settled overseas, where they travelled from, where they ended up and if they had relatives waiting for them.

Society Of Friends (Quaker) Congregational RecordsThis record set includes eight different register types: death & burial, deeds, disownments & testimonials, membership, minutes, miscellaneous, poor committee, and sufferings. Some date back to the mid-1600s.

Society Of Friends (Quaker) School Records: Seven schools are represented in these records: Brookfield School, Camden Street School, Friend’s School Mountmellick, Leinster Provincial School, Munster Provincial School, Sunday School Register, and United School FindMyPast notes that some details may have been missed in the transcription process so researchers should be sure to check the image attached to each record.

Quaker BMDs: This collection of Birth (28,000 records), Marriage (33,000 records) and Death (39,000 records) dates back to the 1600s.
