According to the Archives of Ontario:

“As of November 15, the Archives of Ontario’s latest release of historical Vital Statistics will be available on microfilm in our reading room at 134 Ian Macdonald Boulevard, Toronto, Ontario, and through our Microfilm Interloan Service.”

While the Carleton Place Library has always purchased the latest indexes, and some death registrations, for genealogical researchers, this is the very first time that the latest microfilm releases are not being made available for purchase.  There is talk of digitizing these statistics from now on.

No need to panic though, as we can still interloan the indexes and registrations on microfilm for our public to use.  The latest release covers indexes and registrations for Ontario births up to 1916, marriages up to 1931, and deaths up to 1941.
