Scott, Kenneth. 1979.British aliens in the United States during the War of 1812. Baltimore, Md: Genealogical Pub. Co. (FHL 973 W4s) As the War of 1812 began, all residents of the United States from Britain who had not begun the naturalzation process were considered an enemy of the country. To overcome this status, it was necessary for them to register locally with descriptions of themselves and their family members, how long they had been in the country, their occupation and their residency. This book lists these individuals and their information. It is a very good source of British immigrants prior to passenger lists beginning in 1820.
