YOU CANNOT FIND SOMEONE'S BIRTH, MARRIAGE or DEATH? ....
The following omissions from the birth, marriage and death indexes were reported to the Ontario maillist by Donna Scott. I am including the information here with her permission. I have added the film numbers to her descriptions. Further additions at the bottom courtesy of Mary-Ann Vanderloo.
ONTARIO VITAL STATISTIC corrections, delayed registrations and retakes are on various birth, marriage and death index reels. Most of the changes have been put on the reels at the beginning, however, please pay particular attention to 1899 Birth reel. The additions follow the end of the alphabet, i.e. after the letter "Z". In 1899 there were a large number found, 750 pages of index.
