Ancestry updates British Columbia civil registration databases

Ancestry.ca's recent update to British Columbia civil registration indexes has added 1900-1903 to births, over 11,000 records; 1925-1935 to marriages, about 100,000 records; and 1980-1990 to deaths, about 192,000 records.

Remember that familysearch.org also has BC civil registration records which usually have more information than the Ancestry index, especially by giving parents names.

For births both indexes go up to 1903. The Ancestry the index for marriages has three years beyond that on FS and four additional years for deaths.

The BC Archives also have a website with one additional year for marriages (1936) and deaths (1991).
