Have Quaker ancestors? Here's a few free finding aids/ research guides available online that  provide valuable resources. Even a resource that is "old" in terms of the Internet,  can include valuable history and methodologies.

Researching Yorkshire Quaker history. A guide to sources. Complied by Helen E Roberts for the Yorkshire Quaker Heritage Project.
