Archives of Ontario has released a new year of Ontario birth (1913), marriage (1928) and death (1938) registrations on microfilm.

There are plans to make these registrations, plus one year before and after (births 1912-1914, marriages 1927-1929, deaths 1937-1939) available on the Archives of Ontario website in the near future.
