Early Ontario Marriages

Rick Roberts from Global Genealogy announces that 32 volumes of the early pre-civil registration Ontario District marriages and other District vital records
previously available only in book form are now on pdf on CDs.
These are marriages conducted before 1869, the start of full BMD registration in Ontario, well over 100,000 of them. Marriages by Anglican and Catholic clergymen are not included, but you may find an Anglican or Catholic couple took advantage of a nonconformist minister to conduct the ceremony if it was more convenient.

There's a "how to use" article at http://globalgenealogy.com/news/articles/00062.htm. Each online description of the volumes contains a link to the complete name index meaning you can check to see if a name sought appears before making a decision to buy.

The new CD version sells as $19.95 while the printed version is $34.95.

Most of these records are already part of the Ottawa Family History Center's film collection (if you don't mind using a microfilm reader).
