The Canadian Marriage Collection contains more than 20 million records, and more than 4 million original images, from marriages across Canada, dating as far back as 1621. Marriage collections contain information about both spouses, including name, age at marriage, birth date, birth place, parents’ names, parents’ occupations and parents’ birth places. Marriage records can help you discover not only the details around a major milestone in the lives of your ancestors, but can also take you back a generation by providing information on the newlyweds’ parents. Combine the information you find in these records with historic newspapers and try to discover the full story of the marriage of your ancestors.
