Re: Black Loyalist Heritage Society - Tries to Reb

here's an interesting
news update from the Black Loyalist Heritage Society :) tb

-


Black Loyalist lineage is world-wide

Black Loyalists’ descendants are spread throughout the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Australia, around the world.

A blank family history page in her daughter’s bible is what inspired genealogical record searcher Debra Hill to begin the quest for knowledge of her ancestors.

“In 1989 I gave my daughter a bible for a gift and in the front was a place to put your family genealogy. I didn’t know anything to put there so I started researching and discovered the Black Loyalist history.”

Referencing census counts, birth and marriage records, Carleton’s Book of Negroes, regarded as “the single most important document relating to the immigration of African Americans to Nova Scotia following the War of Independence” by the Nova Scotia Archives, as well as other resources, Hill has traced the genealogy of Black Loyalist descendants near and far.

“The more we (Black Loyalist Heritage Society) kept going and the more we found out, the more it became apparent that we are one of the founding people of this nation,” said Hill. “We want to make sure our history is told.”
