My name is Earline Hines Bradt UE and I have two sons and am a grandmother of five. I live in SW Ontario, Canada and I have been researching my family history for just a few years. I am also researching the United Empire Loyalists after having acquired an interest in them as a child from my father, who is descended from UE Loyalists. He died not knowing the names of his UE Loyalist ancestors and I have been trying to gather as much information about them and other Loyalists as well as the times they lived in. 

I am a member of the Bicentennial Branch of the UELAC and I have my certificates for Joseph Haines,Sr. UEL. and Nathaniel Haines UEL. I have been researching this family and collecting documentary sources to prove that I am one of many direct descendants of these men.

I am also researching my Doan family, both of my great-grandmothers were Doans. The Doan families came to Upper Canada from Bucks County, PA before 1800. My husband's ancestors were also United Empire Loyalists and I am researching his family history as well.
