Original Index Books to Birth, Marriage and Death Registrations - July to Dec. 1869


Births: If you have already searched the Indexes to Births and Stillbirths (RG 80-4) and have not found the birth registration you are looking for, there is a very slight chance that the birth is indexed in the Original Index Books to Birth and Stillbirth Registrations (RG 80-12), or in the Original Index Books to Birth, Marriage, and Death Registrations (RG 80-11) listed below.

Marriages: Marriages dated between July and December 1869 are indexed in the Original Index Books to Birth, Marriage, and Death Registrations (RG 80-11) listed below. Also check the Original Index Books to Marriage Registrations (RG 80-24) for marriages taking place in 1869.

Deaths: If you have already searched the Indexes to Deaths (RG 80-10) and have not found the death registration you are looking for, there is a very slight chance that the death is indexed in the Original Index Books to Birth, Marriage, and Death Registrations (RG 80-11) listed below.

The Original Index Book is arranged:

  • First, by surname initial, and

  • Second, by the event (ordered by marriages, deaths, then births)

To view the microfilm you may:

  • Consult MS 938, Reel 1 in our reading room on the ground floor, 134 Ian Macdonald Blvd., Toronto.

  • Through the Interlibrary Loan Department of your public library, borrow microfilm MS 938, Reel 1. This microfilm cannot leave the borrowing library, so make sure to request it from a library that has a microfilm reader.

  • Borrow the film from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through their Family History Centres. The Family History Centres have a different numbering system than the Archives of Ontario. These FamilySearch conversion numbers have been provided in the right hand column of the table below or, for a complete list of all GSU conversion numbers, consult the microfilm conversion list.

  • Purchase the appropriate microfilm reel directly from the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS). Quote MS 938, Reel 1. For information on how to place an order, visit the Ontario Genealogical Society website or contact the OGS at:
