In some provinces, authorities began registering births, marriages, and deaths since the 1860s. Complete registration in all the provinces and territories was achieved in the 1920s. After this date, almost all individuals who lived in Canada are recorded.

For searching the browse:
 
 
 
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br> ⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br> ⇒Select the "Year or Year Range" category<br> ⇒Select the "Certificate Number Range" category which will take you to the images.
 
 
 
Look at each image one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
 
 
 
==== Using the Information  ====
 
 
 
When you have found the information that you are looking for, you could:  
 
 
 
*Find information about the parents and where they were born.
 
*Find the maiden name of the bride and her parents.  
 
*Use this information to look through the Canadian Census collections. That information could help you find out the parents approximate birth date, their birth places, and their children.

==== Unable to Find Your Ancestor?  ====
 
 
 
Expand your search of marriage records to include family members, such as when and where children were born, records of brothers and sisters and possible relatives found in the area where your ancestor lived. This can help narrow down the place to search in other records.
 
 
 
See what records exist in the family, such as Bibles, letters, obituary clippings, or records from previous research by yourself or a family member
 
 
 
If you believe a marriage took place but cannot find a record of the marriage, search records of intent to marry.
 
 
 
Your ancestor might have lived in a different place from where you were looking for the birth, marriage, or death.
 
  
Your ancestor may have used a nickname or a different surname, or the registrar spelled the name wrong. See Name Variations in Canadian Indexes and Records .
+
== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 +
You can search the index or view the images or both. To begin your search it is helpful to know:
 +
*The name of your ancestor
 +

What is in this Collection?

This article is about two collections of New Brunswick marriage records. When complete, the collections will contain marriage records from New Brunswick, including:

  • Marriage Registers — 1789-1889
  • Marriage Certificates — 1887-1950
  • Delayed Registration of Marriages — 1920-1945
  • Returns of Marriages — 1887-1950

Records are written in English.

The provincial government of New Brunswick began recording births, marriages, and deaths in 1888. For 1810 to 1887 records, there is a "Late Registration" compilation which is indexed. It is located at the Provincial Archives. These records were registered after 1888. Vital records are the responsibility of the provinces except for the registration of First Nations individuals (Native Canadians), which is a federal responsibility. In some provinces, authorities began registering births, marriages, and deaths since the 1860s. Complete registration in all the provinces and territories was achieved in the 1920s. After this date, almost all individuals who lived in Canada are recorded.

The information recorded in civil records of vital registration varied over time. Later records generally give more complete information. Vital records are usually written in English or French, but content varies by time period and province. For example, before 1907 in Ontario, parents’ names were not usually on death certificates, but they are after that date.
