===Writing for a More Recent Birth, Marriage, or Death Record===
 +
*[https://www.ontario.ca/page/get-or-replace-ontario-birth-certificate ServiceOntario, Birth Records] is the only government-authorized source for obtaining birth certificates.  Go to the section entitled "Order a Birth Search".  This is the most economical, searches the widest time period, and allows searches for people not immediately related. A letter of information is provided rather than a certificate.
 +
*[https://www.ontario.ca/page/how-get-copy-ontario-marriage-certificate-online ServiceOntario, Marriage Records] offers a marriage search option and a historical certificate option.
 +
*[https://www.ontario.ca/page/how-get-copy-ontario-death-certificate-online ServiceOntario, Death Records] offers a death search option and a historical certificate option. Also official death certificates are available to a wider range of relatives than birth and marriage certificates.
 +
===FamilySearch Library Microfilmed Records===
 +
Some of the church/civil records have been microfilmed by FamilySearch.These microfilms may be available for viewing at [https://familysearch.org/locations/ Family History Centers] around the world. To find a microfilm:
 +
:::a. Click on [https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=174088&query=%2Bplace%3A%22Canada%2C%20Ontario%2C%20Wellington%22 '''records for Canada, Ontario, Wellington County'''.] You will see a list of available records for the county.
 +
:::b. You will also see above the list the link '''Places within Canada, Ontario, Wellington County'''.  This will take you to a list of towns in the counties, which are links to records for the specific town.
 +
:::c. Click on any topic. Click on the blue links to specific record titles.
 +
:::d. Some combination of these icons will appear at the far right of the microfilm listed for the record. [[File:FHL icons.png|75px]].  The magnifying glass indicates that the microfilm is indexed. Clicking on the magnifying glass will take you to the index. Clicking on the camera will take you to an online digital copy of the microfilm.

==Church Records==
 +
Church records can include baptisms, marriages, burials, membership lists, financial business, and other records for a particular congregation.  They may be available online or on microfilm, but frequently they are still with the local church or in centralized archives by religion. The Canadian census records asked for the religion of those listed, so you will be able to narrow down which archives to consult.  For help with writing a letter requesting copies of records, see [[Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy|'''Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy''']].

Writing for a More Recent Birth, Marriage, or Death Record

  • ServiceOntario, Birth Records is the only government-authorized source for obtaining birth certificates. Go to the section entitled "Order a Birth Search". This is the most economical, searches the widest time period, and allows searches for people not immediately related. A letter of information is provided rather than a certificate.
  • ServiceOntario, Marriage Records offers a marriage search option and a historical certificate option.
  • ServiceOntario, Death Records offers a death search option and a historical certificate option. Also official death certificates are available to a wider range of relatives than birth and marriage certificates.

Church Records

Church records can include baptisms, marriages, burials, membership lists, financial business, and other records for a particular congregation. They may be available online or on microfilm, but frequently they are still with the local church or in centralized archives by religion. The Canadian census records asked for the religion of those listed, so you will be able to narrow down which archives to consult. For help with writing a letter requesting copies of records, see Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy.
