Quaker Archives Database
"The Quaker Archives database is a combined name index to many of the older documents in Leeds University Library's Carlton Hill archive, the nature of which is described in the guide to the Quaker Archives accessible below. The database contains nearly 40,000 records, most of them indexing the names of those individual Quakers who are recorded in minute books of West and North Yorkshire Meetings of the Society of Friends, dating from the late 17th to the early 20th century. Altogether some seventy minute books have been indexed for the database, and a list of indexed documents is also available below. It must be stressed that the records in the database - which are derived from old typescript indexes - provide (on the whole) little more than page references to archival documents. In this way the database is essentially a finding list for use alongside the Carlton Hill archive."
