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.
