Ontario Civil Birth Registrations

Below are links to Birth Registrations transcribed
from LDS (family history center) microfilms.

Birth missing?
Since these years are for registration, check the year before!
Or, birth may be on another film of those missed.
In some cases a registration in one year may be in the film for
the year of birth instead.
There are films for each year with delayed registrations.
(I have not transcribed these!)
