To Babs Doherty, I'm afraid I don't know of a website that gives actual Quaker family history information. You didn't mention what particular records you may be interested in, where when etc... I know that the Quaker digest registers relating to the UK can be consulted at Friends House Library, London and date back to about the 1670s... They may well be usefull to you if your family is or was based in the UK. Copies of the Quaker Digest Register microfilms may be held in Mormon archives across the US if you are not UK based but of interest to you. They are very easy to use and are virtually complete though a few original registers were lost. If you're asking about American resources and American Quaker family history archives I'm affraid I can't help you; I have no knowledge of the Quakers in America or their registers.
