Topic:  “All Kinds of Loyalists”
 
During the American Revolutionary War, approximately 35% of the population of the Thirteen Colonies were loyal to King George III of Great Britain. Was your ancestor one of them? If your ancestor sided with the British, he/she was branded a Tory and faced expulsion from the newly formed United States of America at the conclusion of the war. Tips and strategies for researching your Loyalist ancestor will be shared by the Past Dominion Genealogist of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada.
