Original Index Books to Marriage Registrations - 1873-1911


If you have already searched the Indexes to Marriages (RG 80-7) and have not found the marriage registration you are looking for, there is a very slight chance that the marriage is indexed in the Original Index Books to Marriage Registrations (RG 80-24) listed below.

Each Original Index Book is arranged:

  • First, by surname initial, and
  • Second, by name of the County or District (City of Toronto registrations were sometimes listed separately)

Once you have found the Index that may contain the marriage you are looking for, note the MS 941 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 941 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 941 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 Registrations of Marriages (Listed Geographically) - 1869-1911.

If the person's name is not in the Indexes to Marriages (RG 80-7) or in the Original Index Books to Marriage Registrations (RG 80-24) listed below, the marriage was likely not registered or did not take place in Ontario.
