Indexes to Births and Stillbirths - 1869-1917


Check the microfilm listings table below for the year of the birth and surname initial of the person you are looking for. If you are unsure of the date of the birth, expand your search to include a greater number of years.

Once you have found the Index that may contain the birth you are looking for, note the MS 931 reel number found in the "Archives of Ontario Microfilm Reference" column of the table. You may then:

  • Consult the appropriate reel at our reading room on the ground floor, 134 Ian Macdonald Blvd., Toronto.

  • Through the Interlibrary Loan Department of your public library, borrow the appropriate microfilm reel. Quote MS 931 and the appropriate reel #. These reels cannot leave the borrowing library, so make sure to request them 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.

  • The Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) is authorized to sell vital statistics microfilm reels for the following time periods: Births: 1869-1913, Marriages: 1869 – 1928, and Deaths: 1869-1938.

Researchers will note a break in the sequential MS codes between the birth registrations of 1912 and 1913. When FamilySearch ceased the microfilming of genealogical records, the Archives of Ontario switched to scanning the Registrar General's Vital Statistics records into a digital format instead. From this digital version, two microfilm copies were created: a high-density preservation copy placed in permanent cool storage under its own MS codes; and, an identical copy that was sub-divided into the various RG 80 series and sub-series for use by the public.

1915 A- W, Y-Z (No X surnames recorded) MS 931, Reel 29
