Over 2 million new records are available to search this Findmypast Friday including:
The Ontario Birth Index is comprised of a massive 1.7 million civil registration records. Civil registration in Canada is the responsibility of the individual provinces and territories and did not become a standard practice until the late 1800s.
Each record contains both a transcript and an image of the original document. Each transcript will reveal your ancestor’s date of birth, place of birth parent’s names and registration details. These records provide a valuable link to the previous generation and images may include additional information such as parents’ occupations, where the parents were married, the name of the attending physician, address of residence, where specifically the child was born, and any additional remarks.
