Our Next Meeting 

Saturday, April 22nd at 1:00 pm Eastern time

Our speaker will be award-winning author, Jean Rae Baxter. Her topic will be “Fort Frontenac: The Rise and Fall of New France’s Key to the West”.  She says that the story of the fort – Kingston’s predecessor at the end of Lake Ontario – is all due to the beaver.

If you’re in Kingston and area, you can attend the in-person meeting at St. Paul’s Anglican Church Hall, 137 Queen Street (at Montreal). Doors will open at 12:30 p.m.

If you prefer, come to the meeting by Zoom. A link will be posted here before the event. Please join shortly before 1:00 pm

All are welcome — bring a friend or two, or feel free to share the link above with others who may be interested in a warm and informative indoor activity, particularly on a day forecast to have snow and wind.

Kingston & District Branch of 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.
