New Births, Deaths & Marriage Records Available for Ontario

The Archives of Ontario has completed microfilm of  Vital Statistics records from the Office of the Registrar General for the 1913 birth, 1928 marriage, and 1938 death indexes and registrations.

Consisting of over 127,000 scanned images, the microfilm and its related finding aids are available  at the Reading Room at 134 Ian Macdonald Boulevard in Toronto, Ontario, on York University's Keele Street campus, and at local libraries through the Interloan program. 

The Vital Statistics records for 1914 birth, 1929 marriage, and 1939 death indexes and registrations, are currently being scanned and the resulting 130,000 images checked for clarity and completeness. 

Ontario Archives is working to have these records available online in a searchable format in 2011. They also hope to make the 1915 birth, 1930 marriage, and 1940 death registrations available later in the same year. As the work progresses, further details will be released through Archives of Ontario website.
