Research on Loyalists Is Topic Of Falmouth Genealogical Society Meeting

Tomorrow at 10 AM the Falmouth Genealogical Society hosts Paul Bunnell, who will offer strategies for “Researching Loyalist Migrations.” In his talk, he will tell about how his interest in genealogy led to the discovery of his Canadian loyalist roots as well as extensive Native American bloodlines.

The talk will be held at Falmouth Public Library.


Mr. Bunnell notes that after the American Revolutionary War, all loyalists did not migrate to what are now the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick areas of Canada. Some left for Britain, as well as Bermuda, Jamaica, Martinique, Dominica, and St. Lucia. His talk will cover loyalist activities from around the time of the American Revolution, through the loyalist exodus of 1783, and to the time descendants later returned to the US.

Mr. Bunnell has presented loyalist talks on the radio and TV, and has produced several internet articles on genealogy. Included among his many publications are: Research Guide to Loyalist Ancestors; Evacuee Loyalists of Boston, Mass., March 1776; and American Migrations and Documents Guide.

Mr. Bunnell is a founding  member and a life member of the Falmouth Genealogical Society, and belongs to many loyalist, genealogical, and historical societies throughout the United States and Canada.
