Index to Unindexed Names in Hinshaw's Quaker Encyclopedia
William Wade Hinshaw's incredible Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy project has been a mainstay for years for quaker records research. I recently purchased the entire set of volumes on a CD. Included on the CD was a little file called names.txt which turned out to be a list of names that were never included in indexes. For the most part, these were names that appeared on what I would call "leaves" of the usual pages. For example, page 822 of Volume V has leaves numbered 822a, 822b, etc. Many of these unindexed names were my progenitors so I took the opportunity to create an index of these 3,652 names and publish them here.
