Many Ontario genealogists have been anticipating Brenda Dougal Merriman's new book United Empire Loyalists, A Guide to Tracing Loyalist Ancestors in Upper Canada (Ontario). It's advertised as "a general guide to assist the tracing of Loyalist ancestors, not only for the beginner, but also for those who encounter stumbling blocks on their way. In this book we find a guide to the necessary sources; background information; selections from previous experience; and analytical interpretations of the records."
I have not yet seen it, but judging by Brenda's previous book, Genealogy in Ontario, Searching The Records, it should become the standard work in the field. Available from Global Genealogy.
