A must for those researching their ancestors in Ontario is the Archives of Ontario located in Toronto. In addition to the Ontario births, marriages, and deaths, they have immigration, wills, estate and land records.
If you can’t make it to Toronto, remember that a library near you can order microfilms from the Archives of Ontario through interlibrary loan for you to view within your local library.
