BOOK - Tories, Fighting for the King in America's First Civil War
By Thomas B. Allen
Published by Harper Collins, New York, 2010
A sweeping, dramatic history of the Americans who chose to side with the British in the Revolution. The American Revolution was not simply a battle between independence-minded colonists and the oppressive British. As Thomas B. Allen reminds us, it was also a savage and often deeply personal civil war, in which conflicting visions of America pitted neighbor against neighbor and Patriot against Tory (Loyalist) on the battlefield, the village green, and even in church. The Revolution also produced one of the greatest migrations in Western history. More than 80,000 Loyalists left America, most of them settling in Canada.

BOOK - Haldimand County Marriage and Burial Registers, 1851 - 1865 [Ontario, Canada]
By Dan Walker, Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2001 (CD 2011)
Haldimand County began separate registers for marriages and burials in 1851. This transcription includes records from the "1851 registers" which cover the period of 1851-1865. At first glance, one might think that the marriages included in this register for the 1858-1865 period are duplicates of those recorded in the "County Marriage Registers" which were used between 1858 and 1869. There are marriages in this earlier "1851 register" which are were not recorded in the "County Marriage Registers 1858-1869" and vice versa. It is important to check both registers.

hard cover version BOOK - Perth County Baptism, Marriage & Burial Register, 1852-1859 [Ontario, Canada]
By Dan Walker & Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2000 (CD 2011)
Following the move from a district to a county system of local government in mid 19th century Ontario, counties became responsible for recording all marriages within their boundaries. Using individual returns submitted by clergy performing vital events in the county, the clerk of Perth County created a separate register for marriages, baptisms and burials in 1852. This book includes a complete transcription of the all surviving county records for the period - both the registers and the original returns from the clergy for the period 1852-1859.
