BOOK - York's Sacrifice, Militia Casualties of the War of 1812
By Janice Nickerson
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2012

Softcover...19.95 (C$)

The militia's contribution to the War of 1812 is not well understood. Even now, 200 years later, we don't know how many Upper Canadian militia men died defending their home.

York's Sacrifice profiles 39 men who lost their lives during the war. They include 19 residents of the Town of York [Toronto], five residents of York County, and 11 residents of Halton, Peel, and Wentworth Counties. Where possible, biographies include information about each man's origin, residence, occupation, civic life, family, militia service, and circumstances of death. A section on records provides detailed guidance in finding and using records from the period to trace an ancestorís militia service and life in this difficult time period.

A complete list of men who served in the three York regiments during the war indentifies those who were killed, injured, captured, or deserted.

The book also includes a significant section "Researching Your War of 1812 Ancestors in Upper Canada [Ontario]" including instruction in the following categories: Militia Records,; Church Records and Other Vital Records; Land Records; Court Records; Government Correspondence, War Losses and Claims; Local Governement Records; Newspapers; Report of the Loyal and Patriotic Society of Upper Canada.
