County Marriage Registers - 1858 - June 1869


The table below lists marriage registrations from the counties across the province and indexes for these registers. These registrations were compiled by the County Clerks of the Peace (the successors to the District Clerks) under authority of the 1857 Marriage Act and date predominantly from 1858-1869.

Although the majority of the registrations are for marriages, some of the registers also include registrations of births, baptisms, and deaths, and were compiled by various members of the clergy, rather that the County Clerks of the Peace.

Use the table below to identify the reel of microfilm that contains the register that you need. You may then:

  • Consult the appropriate reel at our reading room on the ground floor, 134 Ian Macdonald Blvd., Toronto.
  • Borrow the reel through the Interlibrary Loan Department of your public library. Quote MS 248 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.
