Event Details

Have you ever thought you might have Quaker ancestors? Have you ever been told you have Quaker ancestors? Have you tried finding your Quaker relatives, but gotten stumped by Quaker jargon? Come hear a discussion of Quaker archives, particularly in the Philadelphia area, to learn about how to use these resources. Mary will also discuss the over 8 million Quaker documents in Ancestry.com and how best to use those resources.

Mary Crauderueff is the Curator of Quaker Collections in the Haverford College Quaker and Special Collections. She is an alum Earlham College (’07) and the University of Maryland, College Park (’09), where she earned her Masters in Library Science, with a specialization in Archives, Records, and Information Management. Since 2009, she has worked for a variety of archives and organizations in the Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Boston areas. She returned to the Philadelphia area in June 2015 to begin this position.

Mary works with researchers of all kinds, including students, faculty, genealogists, and other academics. She fosters relationships with donors who donate materials to the collections, and she works directly with the materials in the collection in order to make it more accessible. One of her favorite parts of her job is working with classes to show the amazing collections Haverford holds to another generation of researchers!

In her free time she likes to hike in the Wissahickon with her friends, take pictures of and drink coffee, and find ways to fight white supremacy, transphobia, and patriarchy.
