Do you have Loyalist Ancestors?

Do you have a Loyalist ancestor? I do, and I delight in finding information about him and his family. He apparently was quite notorious in his area of New Jersey. He fought against his own brother, and eventually emigrated to Canada at the end of the war.

There are many good sources of information about loyalists, and fellow blogger Randy Seaver gives them good coverage in one of his posts. They include newsletters you can subscribe to and websites to visit including one hosted by United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada. Randy’s article is rich in research ideas.
