New Release of Ontario Vital Statistics Microfilm
The Archives of Ontario has just announced the following on its website:
The Archives of Ontario is pleased to announce that the microfilm of the 2009 accrual of Vital Statistics records from the Office of the Registrar General, comprising the 1913 birth, 1928 marriage, and 1938 death indexes and registrations, is now availalble. Consisting of over 127,000 scanned images, the microfilm and its related finding aids are available, both at our Reading Room at 134 Ian Macdonald Boulevard in Toronto, Ontario, on York University's Keele Street campus, and at your local library through our Interloan program. The Vital Statistics listings on our website have been updated to include the new reels.
The 2010 accrual of Vital Statistics records, consisting of the 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. As the Archives embarks on making archival records accessible through the Internet, we are working to have these records available online in a searchable format in 2011. We will also be striving to make the April 2011 accrual of 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 this website.
