FInding a Loyalist Ancestor

Have you discovered you have a Loyalist ancestor? A
Loyalist is any person who is loyal to their allegiance (especially in
times of revolt). During the American Revolution in what was to become
the United States of America, a Loyalist (also called UEL – United
Empire Loyalist) was anyone who remained loyal to the King of England.
They were called Tories in their own country but Loyalists elsewhere.
Most fled to Canada and helped settle that country, particularly Ontario
and Nova Scotia
