Can anyone here trace their ancestry to United Empire Loyalists who left the United States after the American Revolution?

My wifes family and many of their longtime neighbors at one time were Empire Loyalists who have been living in the Granby/Waterloo/Sheford area of southern Quebec,they seem to have generally come from the upstate NY and VT areas.

Chris you certainly have a lot of interest in Quebec,are you planning on moving up? or do you have some Quebec heritage?have you ever been here (Quebec)

My family has no United Empire Loyalists, but I believe that my step-grandmother's family were Loyalists, but I don't know where they came from in the United States. They settled near Belleville, ON, there are a lot of Loyalists who settled all along the shore of the Bay of Quinte/Lake Ontario/St. Lawrence River and Highway 33 between Trenton, Ontario and Kingston, Ontario was renamed the Loyalist Parkway for that very reason.
