ONTARIO / QUEBEC

Civil registration of births/marriages/deaths did not begin until after Confederation (1867); therefore the parish records describing baptisms, marriages and burials, are important sources.

Upper Canada District Marriage Registers
Beginning in 1831, clergy who performed marriages in churches that were neither Anglican nor Roman Catholic (also known as "non-conformist") were required to send copies of the records to the Clerks of the Peace in district towns. (Some marriage records survive from as early as 1799). The records were transcribed into registers, microfilm copies of which are available from the Archives of Ontario through inter-library loan.  Transcriptions are available at libraries and many VV/related families records have been found:  Marriage Records of Upper Canada / Canada West, 1786-1870 (Global Heritage Press) 

Canada West County Marriage Registers
In 1849, Ontario's districts were replaced by counties, and in 1857, new legislation required that copies of all records of marriages performed by clergy in Canada West (Anglican, Roman Catholic and non-conformist) were to be sent to county authorities. Microfilm copies of original county marriage records are available from the Archives of Ontario through inter-library loan. Transcriptions are available at libraries and many VV/related families records have been found: County Marriage Registers of Ontario, 1858-1869 (Generations Press)

Vital Records of Upper Canada/Canada West
The Vital Records of Upper Canada/Canada West is a multi-volume series that complements the Upper Canada district marriage registers. While the Upper Canada district marriage registers transcribes and indexes marriage records created by clergymen who were neither Anglican nor Roman Catholic, the Vital Records of Upper Canada/Canada West series transcribes and indexes birth, marriage and death information from a variety of sources, including many church registers. The series covers three districts: N
iagara (1792-1869), Gore (1795-1869) and Dalhousie (1825-1869).  Transcriptions are available at libraries and many VV/related families records have been found: Vital Records of Upper Canada / Canada West (Global Heritage Press)
