    Talking UEL resources

    G'Day Peggy,
    The United Empire Loyalists mob at the Rootsweb UEL mailing list are whizzes as supplying this info. Some of them include branch presidents with lots of the indexes and military historians.

    I've got three (at least) UEL ancestors (some (Stevens) were also Mohawk), so could even post a query for you if you email me what names and places you are looking into.

    Other things to do is put Loyalist + ancestors' name into google and look at what comes up. The Fort Klock historic society has a lot of information up on line, which is quite detailed.

    Cheers

    Hi Willow,

    Thanks. I'll send you an e-mail about a query to that list.

    Google is one of my first stops for any problem, and in this case I even have a "google alert" on the man. From googling, I've learned that I'm not the only one looking for the info; there's an historical association posting the same queries. I've been in touch, and they've found nothing. Frustrating. I'd be starting to wonder if he'd ever existed if a member of Yolanda's group hadn't come up with a brief death notice from a Bahamian newspaper!

    Best,

    Peggy

    I must give credit to where it's due, I found the UEL webisites of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island extensive and in just 24 hours managed to get about 3 generations and numerous family data on a Loyalist ancestor in my family - and until recently I didn't even know I had one - LOL!

    What's more difficult I have found is tracking backwards to the respective colonies...plenty of family info on the Patriot families....but not too many connections with those who became Loyalists.

    Default Loyalists

    Dear Peggy,

    I have spent more than ten years researching the History and origin of the Loyalists who migrated to the Bahamas after The American War of Independence. They began arriving in the Colony in 1783. The English Settlers from England
    came to The Bahamas in 1650. I live in Nassau, Bahamas.

    You can contact me, if you are interested.

    Vera.

    Default Loyalist Memorials

    I have discovered two Loyalists from Virginia in my husband's Tarpley family. Online information appears to be taken from their memorials, and I understand that these are preserved in England. Is there any way to obtain copies of these memorials by mail?

    If you mean Memorial Inscriptions, why not post some details here? Name, location and other information to identify individuals. You mat find that someone on the forums lives nearby and may be able to assist.

    I believe we are talking about to different things. The memorials that I am talking about are the petitions in which Loyalists in America sought compensation for the financial losses caused by their loyality to the Crown. I understand that they often contain genealogical information. I am seeking to learn more about William Tarpley and Dr. Thomas Griffin Tarpley, originally from Virginia. Dr. Tarpley actually moved to England, married into the nobility, and spent the rest of his life there.

    Ah, I'm with you now. Have a browse of this TNA research guide dealing with the civil war in America which led to independence.

    I believe that the claims are held at TNA in document class T1/528-538 and I think they are mostly/all individually indexed on TNA's catalogue.

    If you can find a reference to a document, you can order it from TNA.
