The “Quarterly” will have Loyalist articles, genealogies, research ideas and problems solving. Historical notes, currant events as conferences and conventions. Listings of other organizations interested in Loyalist studies, re-enactment events, and shared information. Queries, haunting stories, book reviews, and little known tidbits on historical figures from the Rebellion. The purpose of this newsletter is to help others in their search to establish the proper documentation on their Loyalists, and to educate all on the lives and events of why our ancestors made those difficult choices before, during and after the American Revolution.

REVIEW of my Loyalist Quarterly Newsletter:                                                               In the Winter 2005 it was reviewed by the very popular and highly acclaimed veteran journalist, SANDRA DEVLIN. Listed in the journal, "Generations" published by the New Brunswick Genealogical Society, she gave an applauding review of this only Loyalist Newsletter produced in the USA. Sandra has over 30+ years as a free-lance journalist from Moncton, and a daily newspaper reporter, photographer, editor and managing editor in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and northern and southern Ontario. She is also credited as a community college journalist instructor in PEI. After 1997, she was running a weekly genealogy column in 12 newspapers throughout Canada (Maritimes papers are: The Times & Transcript, Moncton, NB, The King's County Record, Sussex, NB, The Miramichi Leader, Miramichi City, NB, The Guardian, Charlottetown, PEI, The Progress-Pioneer, Summerside, PEI, The Daily News, Truro, NS, The Bulletin and The Progress Enterprise, Bridgewater and Lunenburg, NS, The Port Hawkesbury Reporter, Cape Breton, The Northern Light, Bathurst, NS. She has loyalist ancestors (Mills family). She even performed in the CBC TV series, Emily of New Moon with her husband Rod (now desceased). Other credits are executive of the Southeastern Branch of the New Brunswick Genealogical Society, volunteer at the Heritage Room at the Moncton Library, book review editor for Generations, member of NB Irish Society, quest speaker at conferences, etc. Sadly, Sandra published her last column after diagnosed with terminal cancer (Sept. 2005). Our thoughts and prayers go out to her.    "I am deeply honored to have this great lady review my work."

 Book Reviews: Reviewed by Sandra Devlin

Loyalist Quarterly, new resource for Loyalist research, It's probably a safe bet that most New Brunswickers you ask will recognize United Empire Loyalist as a prominent wave of immigration to our province in the latter 18th. century.

Most genealogists in New Brunswick have at least one, if not several UEL's amoung their ancestors. We will know from school history and family stories that Loyalists some 100,000 of them, who fought on England's side in the American Revolution were forced into exile at war's end.

An opinion poll on the streets of New England, however, is unlikely to register a high recognition factor about Loyalists and their heritage, even though many there have ancestors in this group.

 Paul Bunnell in New Hampshire, proud to append UE to his many credentials as a first-rate genealogical researcher, is intent to remedy this lack of knowledge with his newly launched Loyalist Quarterly, the first of its kind in the United States.

It's a newsletter to help other Loyalist descendants in their search to establish the proper documentation on their pedigree and to educate all on the lives and events of why and how Loyalists were forced to make difficult choices before, during and after the American Revolution, he explains.

Bunnell's publishing plans include articles, genealogies, research ideas, genealogical problem solving, queries, historical notes, conferences, conventions, re-enactments announcements, listings of Loyalist studies organizations, haunting stories, book reviews, and little known tidbits on historical figures.

 For us here in New Brunswick, the Loyalist Quarterly is a new link in the chain that connects our family histories to New England in the 1700's and ealier.

Bunnell is a natural to initiate this project. He is the author of several books focusing on Loyalists and a sought-after lecturer on Loyalist themes, all backed up by more than 25 years of experience in Loyalist studies and genealogy research for himself and others.

 In 1989, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip accepted Bunnell's book , Thunder Over New England, Benjamin Bonnell, The Loyalist at Buckingham Palace. And Bunnell is proud of his Loyalist Pin presented to him by former Saint John mayor Elsie Wayne.

 He is also certified as a ghost hunter with the International Ghost Hunters Society in Paranormal Investigation.

 Canada and the States are very closely related in history, heritage and destiny. After finding my Loyalist, Benjamin Bonnell and Sarah Jones and John Day, I decided to publish and research for others, says Bunnell.

 The hunt is hard because the Loyalists left their homes and became refugees fleeing to New York City and other areas before settling in their new countries. Records are scattered, but the challenge is fun. I hope my newsletter and website help others and I can always be contacted for help or opinions.
