Original Index Books to Death Registrations - 1870-1911


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:

Each Original Index Book to Death Registrations is arranged:

  • First, by surname initial; and
  • Second, by name of the County or District (City of Toronto registrations were often listed separately at the beginning of each year's Index)

Once you have found the Index that may contain the death that you are looking for, note the MS 942 reel number found in the "Archives of Ontario Microfilm Reference" column of the table. You may then:

  • Consult the appropriate reel in 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 942 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
  • Purchase the appropriate microfilm reel directly from the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS). Quote MS 942 and the appropriate reel #. For information on how to place an order, visit the Ontario Genealogical Society website or contact the OGS at:

For each entry, this Index will give a Liber (volume) and Folio (page) number of the Registration. Once you have this information, proceed to the appropriate Registrations of Deaths:

If the person's name is not in the Indexes to Deaths (RG 80-10), in the Original Index Books to Birth, Marriage and Death Registrations (RG 80-11) - July to December, 1869, or in the Original Index Books to Death Registrations listed below, the death was likely not registered or did not take place in Ontario.
