Friends of the Loyalist Collection

The purpose of The Friends of the Loyalist Collection at the Brock University, founded in 2001 in the Region of Niagara in Ontario was created to establish and maintain a collection of source material, mainly on microfilm, about the United Empire Loyalists to encourage academic research and study. It is a non-profit charitable organization.

I will be visiting the Brock University this summer to do some further research on my loyalist heritage , collecting information and sources for my certification as a descendant of the UEL. I am hoping to find land patents and grants for my Haines and Doan ancestors. I will be thrilled if I can find the name of Joseph Haines' wife as well as Nathaniel Haines' wife, Lydia's maiden name.
