Winslow Papers


While the Edward Winslow Family Papers is arguably the single most important collection for the study of the Loyalists, there are a number of other resources that will undoubtedly prove useful. These include but are not limited to:

The Loyalist Collection at the University of New Brunswick
The University of New Brunswick's Loyalist Collection contains microfilm of British, North American Colonial, and early Canadian primary sources from approximately 1740 - 1870, with the chief focus being the American Revolution, and the early years of Loyalist settlement in British North America. The collection contains over 3400 reels of microfilm and 700 microfiche. It is largely unindexed and contains only primary sources.
The David Library of the American Revolution
A privately endowed, nonprofit foundation, the David Library of the American Revolution is devoted to the study of American history circa 1750 to 1800. The Library's resources include 40,000 printed materials in bound volumes and microcards and 10,000 reels of microfilm containing original American, British, Loyalist, French and German records.
The On-Line Institute for Advanced Loyalist Studies
The On-Line Institute for Advanced Loyalist Studies features a selection of manuscripts relating to the Loyalists, including muster rolls, orderly books, regimental documents, court martials and memorials. The site also contains genealogical information, such as relevant links, sources of information, land petitions and post war settlement documents.
The Dictionary of Canadian Biography
The Dictionary of Canadian Biography is an excellent resource, and contains a number of detailed biographies of prominent Loyalists.
Atlantic Canada Virtual Archives
The Atlantic Canada Virtual Archives contains searchable transcriptions of the early volumes of the Winslow Papers.
