Notes: This is a very full microfilm reel and contains thousands of names of Loyalists who received land in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Unfortunately, there is no logical order to the material in any of the volumes, and in most lists the names are not arranged alphabetically. Place names are spelled as they appear in the original record.
