This work is very important to the genealogists who is interested in tracing early immigrants to Penn's Colony. This book is a chronological list of Quaker immigrants who registered with the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting of Friends, upon their arrival in Philadelphia. This meeting house is the largest of all Quaker meeting in the province. The information is based on the certificates of removal from the Meetings of Friends of which they were members in other countries and other colonies. A large proportion of the Quakers who immigrated into the Province of Pennsylvania took up residence in Philadelphia. Of the nineteen monthly meetings established in Pennsylvania prior to 1750, the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting easily ranks first in the number of certificates received. As a rule, the certificates give the following information: name, date of certificate, former place of residence, former meeting, date of receipt, and other details of quaint and useful interest.
