Note:   spelling of words on records was NOT changed. e. g. Niel instead of Neil.  Any location addition in brackets in the midst of a record is an aid,  since many researchers from other countries may not be familiar with  Ontario locations.  Ontario’s name was changed over its history beginning with Upper Canada, then Canada West, long before the area became known as the Province of Ontario. See early maps on the Ontario home page for clarifications of various Districts as well. Boundaries changed. Current location names are rarely added since  these records are for the period up to early 1900s and location names reflect that period. Most of these people will be found on Ontario death records in the location where they are buried.  

Marriage records in CANADA are the best record to find for the genealogist since they provide the fullest details and often the origin of a person from overseas.
