Birth records can provide details about your genealogy, including your family member's birth and baptism records. They typically contain the name, date and place of the event, parents' names, ages, birthplaces, occupation, and residence.
Birth, baptism, and christening records are primary resources for family history research because they were typically created at or shortly after the birth, making the record more likely to be accurate. This collection includes indexes that can help you request the record, and in some cases, actual images of the birth records.
In most of the birth collections on Ancestry.ca, you will find the indexes that link to images of actual birth records. In other cases, they are indexes that contain information that will help you request the record.
