Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy
William Wade Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy consists of six volumes, each dealing with a different region.
The volumes are arranged by meeting (church), beginning with the oldest and ending with the youngest. Each meeting is introduced with a brief history that includes the names of the earliest members. Next is a section listing information from the meeting's birth and death records, arranged alphabetically by family name. Following that is an abstract of the minutes of the meeting, including marriages, new memberships, transfers of membership, disownments, and restorations to membership. Again the entries are arranged alphabetically by family, and the chronologically.
These encyclopedia's are considered one of the premier sources of
information for early American Quaker genealogy.

William Wade Hinshaw passed away before the sixth volume was ever published. He had lived a long life, much of it dedicated to transcribing the handwritten records of the early Quaker Church.
