Fran,

ome years ago a listing of "War of 1812 veterans of military service with
anadian forces" was reprinted (from the 1876 Dominion Sessional Papers at
ttawa) in V. 1, nos. 1, 2, 3 (June, Oct. 1983, June 1984) of the Connecticut
aple Leaf. The introduction to the list was by Jack Valois. The lists were not
omplete rosters of soldiers, but names, ages and residence of 2,500 veterans
till then living who were eligible for a pension payment. The article indicates
hat over 6,000 Quebec residents saw militia service during that war.

would think it (and/or a full roster) might have been put online somewhere
ince then, but I don't know where you would find it (Canadian national
rchives?).
