Profile of a Quaker - finding a Friend in Colonial America

Author and Professional Genealogist, Steven W. Morrison’s genealogical journey began in 1998, when he self-published a remembrance of his grandmother, a book that is now a part of a millennium time capsule on the Washington State Capitol Campus, and is in the Family History Library collection at Salt Lake City. Since then, he’s published several articles and books and, in 2016, he received the American Society of Genealogist scholar award for his paper, “Quaker John Starr or Antrim and Cavan, Ireland and his five sons who sailed to Pennsylvania.”
