Ideas for expanding this article:

It would be good to list the families of denominations that descend from the Anabaptists. I think these are the Mennonites, the Amish, and possibly the Hutterites? Possibly compare with Baptists, who were influenced by but not directly descended from the Anabaptists.

It would also be good to mention the Martyr's Mirror, as that has been a very influential publication. It says their persecution continued up until sometime in the late 1570's, I forget the date. Persecution caused migration to Russia and other parts of Europe, and of course they came to the United States as well. They're generally known as one (or two if you count Amish separately) of the "peace churches", along with the Quakers, and have generally been conscientious objectors in the United States. --Wesley
