Resources: Loyalist History and Genealogy

There are many sources of information about the Loyalist era, about the Loyalists and their families, and about their family histories and genealogies. Some of these resources are available within the branches of the UELAC and the Association itself. Many more are in libraries, archives and research centres. Although this list will never be completed, we are trying to note as many as we can and try to indicate with each any focus it has, be the focus geographical or type of information. The resources first noted are within the UELAC branches and the Association itself, followed by those outside the UELAC.

It is not meant to link to information about one family (see our Loyalist Directory), but to resources which are broader. Check the Research Data List below:
