Microfilm at local LDS Family History Centres

Birth records are indexed from 1869 to 1907

Marriage records are available from 1869to 1922

Death records from 1869 to 1932.

Birth, marriage and death documentation began in 1869, which can be found at the Ontario Archives that can be borrowed through your local library.

This site can be complicated but it is fun to get the info you are looking for but could not find in any other documents through this resource.

Give Credit Where Credit is Due!

Just recently I found that someone took the pictures I posted on a family friend's Family Tree and claimed them as thier own. I WAS STUNNED! I was shocked, I was horrified!

I could not allow this to happen so I decided that some of the pic's were more private than others and asked the person to delete them from their computer and family tree. I did originally post them for the family friend and his father to enjoy them because the father actually knew the people in the pic's who have passed away since.

This person is such a distant relative that they don't even know the people in the pic's or even knew they existed until I contacted them and introduced myself as a relative.

Am I right in doing this? Maybe not, I don't know!
