I searched and found no such post so hard to know what you are talking about. UELAC came about by Parliament so they do have some authority on things. Lord Dorchester authorized the use of UE: Realizing the importance of some type of recognition, on Nov 9, 1789, Lord Dorchester, the governor of Quebec and Governor General of British North America, declared "that it was his Wish to put the mark of Honour upon the Families who had adhered to the Unity of the Empire." UELAC prints this on the certificates it sends to those that have proven they descend from a Loyalist. I have not heard of them granting anyone use of U.E. Jill U.E. www.sybalsky.com/genealogy

The Importance of Given Names In genealogy we usually concentrate on surnames since they are the most important way of identifying people who are related. A surname is usually inherited and, while it may be changed, some form of it is usually retained. Given names are more important in a way because they represent a voluntary choice by the parents or, sometimes, by an individual. A name is usually not given lightly. Naming Patterns You will often see the same names used over and over again in families. You will probably see names of parents and grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles repeated, but not in any strict order. Frequency Even if the family did not follow this strict pattern, the repetition of names can be significant, especially if there is an unusual name. Some families may show an extreme fondness for one name. Names as a Virtue Recycled Names Up until this century, parents could usually count on one third of their children not surviving. Surnames as Given Names Nicknames Baptismal Names Translated Names
