About United Empire Loyalists, Parts I-II

The creation of the United States caused an exodus of loyal British subjects from the new Union to Canada. This well-known work, created under the auspices of the Canadian government, is a compilation of court records stemming from claims made by these Loyalists during the Revolutionary War. In these records, circumstances of thousands of individuals and families loyal to Great Britain are included, often with information about relatives, occupations, places of residence, business dealings, military action, migration to Canada, and more.
