About the Project

Loyalist Women in New Brunswick, 1783-1827 is a digital collection hosted by the Atlantic Canada Virtual Archives. The ACVA is a joint initiative of Margaret Conrad, Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Studies, and the Electronic Text Centre at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.

The Collection

The original Winslow Family documents imaged on this website are housed in the Archives and Special Collections Department of the University of New Brunswick Libraries, which is a partner in this project.


This project was made possible in part through the Canadian Culture Online Program of Canadian Heritage. Support, both financial and in kind, has been provided by UNB Libraries, the Electronic Text Centre, the Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Studies, and the Vice-President (Research), all based at the University of New Brunswick.
