"New Brunswick Loyalist Journeys"
April 12th, 7:00 PM
Saint John Free Public Library
The NB Branch invites our members and the public to attend our April
gathering, with guest speaker Leah Grandy. Grandy will speak on New
Brunswick Loyalist Journeys, a new digital project that recreates
the stories of loyalists from the American Revolution utilizing
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and historical
research. The initial phase of this project features the lives and
Atlantic migrations of ten loyalists settling in York County, New
Brunswick, illustrated through maps, images, documents, and biography.
The stories of these fascinating individuals will be introduced, along
with this new digital resource.
Leah Grandy holds PhD in History and is employed in the Microforms Unit
of UNB Libraries where she works with The Loyalist Collection.
