We will be periodically adding reviews of books that may be of interest to members and friends of the UELAC. We would like to invite you to visit our Book Reviews page. We are sure you will find it educational as well as interesting.

We would welcome reviews of books that may be of interest, they will be reviewed by our Committee and if they meet our criteria will be published on our web site.

If you have a book review you would like to have considered please submit it (with a photo if possible) to loyalist.trails@uelac.org.

Resources for Researching 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. Visit our resource centre directory.

The Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online, by Library and Archives Canada: It is with great pleasure that we invite you to explore the history of Canada's inhabitants and their culture, thanks to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online. There, you will meet people who played an important role in the formation of what is now Canada. This first phase presents persons who died between the years 1000 and 1930 or whose last known date of activity falls within these years. We are certain that this new means of consulting the Dictionary of Canadian Biography/Dictionnaire biographique du Canada (DCB/DBC), a major research and publishing project launched by the University of Toronto and the Université Laval in 1959, will provide a much easier access to the published biographies and the information that interests you. There is an alphabetic listing by surname, as well as a search facility.
