Global Genealogy has added a new book, Patriotes, Reformer, Rebels & Raiders: Tracing your ancestors during the ‘troublous’ times in Upper and Lower Canada 1820-1851, to its catalogue that may interest genealogists with ancestors who lived in Upper and Lower Canada during the early 19th century, especially if they were involved in the Rebellion.
Written by Kenneth G. Cox, the book provides transcribed lists of many of the players in the Rebellion of 1837-38. For example, the appendix in chapter two includes a list of those tried for treason and held in prison in Upper Canada after the Rebellion. Appendixes to other chapters provide the names of those sentenced to death, a list of captives following the Battle of the Windmill, and the names of individuals transported to Australia. Another chapter describes the military records available at Library and Archives Canada, militia units by district, and British regiments who served during the Rebellions and Border Raids.
The author is a former school principal who started his own family history research when he retired.
