Ontario marriage records for 1940 now on Ancestry

Let the wedding bells ring!

Ancestry has added 247,918  Ontario marriage registrations for 1940 to its collection, Ontario, Canada, Marriages, 1826-1940. These records are from the Archives of Ontario.

If you subscribe to Ancestry.ca, Ancestry’s World Explorer or the All Access package, you’ll be able to search this Ontario marriage collection.

Civil registration of marriages began province-wide in 1869, so you’re unlikely to find too many records in this collection before that year.

One day perhaps, these records will be added to FamilySearch. For now, you’ll have to limit your search to Ontario marriages from 1869 to 1927. FamilySearch’s collection of Ontario marriages was last updated in 2015.
