|The John Woolman Memorial
Located at 99 Branch Street, Mount Holly, New Jersey, the Memorial house was built
between 1771 and 1783 and is on the site of part of John Woolman's orchard.
The purpose of the John Woolman Memorial Association is to keep alive the spirit and
memory of John Woolman and to seek those in whose lives that spirit may grow and serve.
|Welcome to "Woolman Central".
My name is Judy R. Hynes and I have been collecting information on
descendants for about twenty years now.
Volume one of the genealogy was published by the John Woolman Memorial
Association in December of 1997. I am currently working towards an eventual
second volume and welcome any and all descendant's contributions towards
including their particular lines.
Please drop me an email at Judyhynes@msn.com and we'll find out how you are
connected to the family tree!

| Reading Group
at the Woolman Memorial
Thursdays from 7 to 9 pm.
We will be reading
"The Invention of Wings,"
a historical novel about the Grimke sisters,
who were guided by the Truth in dark times.
There is no homework:
We will read out loud and stop to discuss each chapter.
They are short chapters, told in several different voices.
As the Woolman Memorial looks forward to our Centennial Year in 2015, this group will be
navigating the boundary between fiction and history.
Bring a copy of the book if possible. We will have at least one to share.
Please join us when you can
All are welcome!
