Marriage Minutes

Last updated on 12/14/2014

This is the collection of Marriage Minutes, and other minutes which affirm same-sex unions or commitments among Quakers.

The collection is a work in progress. We have incorporated the minutes previously collected by S. Cohen, as well as any other Minutes we have been able to locate. We have incorporated a list generated by late Wallace Cayard of Cranberry Twp, PA by surveying Monthly Meetings in the United States in 1997 and 2004, published in Friends Journal (April 2005). His work has nearly doubled our collection. Any Meeting with a link is one for whom we have the Marriage Minute.
