Kingston & District Branch UELAC welcomes you!

Our Objectives:

  • To unite together in good fellowship the descendants of those families who during the American Revolutionary War sacrificed their land, homes and belongings by retaining their loyalty to the British Crown.
  • To preserve the history of the Loyalists by collecting artifacts, publishing historical and genealogical books, and erecting monuments and memorials in Canada to perpetuate the memory of the United Empire Loyalists.
  • To seek out and preserve the final resting places of the Loyalists within Kingston and District area (Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Counties of Ontario).
  • To increase public awareness of the Loyalist contribution to Canada by encouraging a stronger emphasis on Canadian, particularly Loyalist, history in the school system and by participating in projects that celebrate the memory of the United Empire Loyalists.

Saturday, September 24th – 1:00 pm EDT – Heritage Branch member, and New Brunswick resident Mark Gallop will speak about Loyalists and the American occupation of Montreal 1775-76 during the Revolution.  This most likely will be an in-person and hybrid presentation with local people in attendance at St Paul’s Hall while others view on Zoom.
