Merion was only a "preparative meeting" (a congregation with limited
authority at the local level) from 1701 until 1951:
Merion was established under Haverford Monthly Meeting, which changed its
name to Radnor in 1796, and then to Old Haverford in 1951.
So the records of the marriages held at the Merion PM meetinghouse
as well as births and deaths of Merion PM members would be kept in the
Radnor MM => Old Haverford MM records. The originals are mostly at the
Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College. They have mostly been
microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and could be reviewed at the
Family History Center in most LDS churches.

? Does anyone know why both Radnor MM would be listed along with Merion MM?
