District Records, up to 1855

Before 1855, what is now Ontario was divided into districts.  Marriages from this time frame have been transcribed from District Marriage Registers, found on microfilm at the Ontario Archives.  A description of the records can be found here.  Not all marriage records from this time have survived, and not all of those have been transcribed for this website.
