Canadian records freely available on Ancestry


Ancestry has made its Canadian Births, Marriages and Deaths records free to search and access until 20th Feb.

Not all of them have images attached i.e. some are just transcriptions (and familysearch.org may have them transcribed in more detail), but I’ve found a few useful ones for the Canadian relations I’ve discovered recently. Maud McTaggart, aunt to Helen May Sharman (the wife of Harry Neal b 1899 Manitoba) marries William Henry Nobes in Toronto at the age of 49, with her name given as Phoebe Maud.

There are some well documented family trees on Ancestry connecting with William, complete with newspaper photo of his general store in Wallbridge, Ontario. I’ll tidy it up and post here.

 Update

Ancestry.co.uk has now also made the 1930 Census available to its non-Worldwide subscribers, to 20th Feb.
