Black Loyalists to Get Land Title After 200 years

Wow, Nova Scotia - "Black Loyalists, Black Refugees were given land, but no title, in 1775 and 1812." What a story and it's not over even though it's been 200 years!

This article caught my eye as I am just now preparing to teach a course on finding, interpreting, and using Saskatchewan land records. 200 years is shocking! Anyone interested in my course can read about it here - just scroll down to "FREE LAND"
