Clarification about Vital Statistics records released by Archives of Ontario through Ancestry

The OGS has a clarification in their latest eWeekly Update regarding Ontario vital records and their release on Ancestry, something I blogged about recently. It includes the bad news that:

Due to changes in regulations, 1918 and newer birth registrations and indexes will not be transferred to the Archives of Ontario until 104 years after the year of registration. The 1918 birth registrations and indexes will be transferred to the Archives in 2023.
The free OGS eWeekly Update is available to anyone with an email address and you do not need to be an OGS member to subscribe. I recommend it if you have even the slightest Ontario interest, and even if you don't as it contains more than Ontario news. Subscribe at https://ogs.on.ca/eweekly.php
