There has long been a need for descendants of the United Empire Loyalists to have a general guide to assist the tracing of Loyalist ancestors, not only for the beginner, but also for those who encounter stumbling blocks on their way. In this book we find a guide to the necessary sources; background information; selections from previous experience; and analytical interpretations of the records.
This landmark work acknowledges misconceptions about Loyalists and then clearly defines the criteria for establishing a person as a “Loyalist”. The work focuses on research methodology and sources of information for the researcher, all illustrated by effective case study.
