Updated Ontario Marriages and Deaths at Ancestry.ca
Ancestry.ca, in partnership with Archives of Ontario, has announced the release of updates to two of its Ontario vital statistic databases.
The official announcement was released on the Archives of Ontario website
Ontario, Deaths, 1869-1938, 1943, and Deaths Overseas, 1939-1947
The death registrations for 1943 have been added, and 1944 will be added later this year. However, you'll notice years 1939 through 1942 have yet to be released on Ancestry.ca.
Ontario, Marriages, 1801-1928, 1933-1934
The years 1933-1934 have been added. However, years 1929 through 1932 are missing.
Of course, the marriage record for my grandparents is 1931 and currently unavailable online.
I telephoned Archives of Ontario and spoke with an archivist. I was told the release of these missing years is dependent on copyright and reaching an agreement with the organizations involved. I was then asked to email the Archives of Ontario in order to get an official response to my enquiry. I have done just that. Although I'm eagerly awaiting a response, it could be up fifteen working days before I hear back from the Archives.
