Ontario Deaths, 1869-1937 and Overseas Deaths, 1939-1947

Familysearch has recently added another collection that will be very helpful for those with Jewish ancestry in Ontario, CanadaThat database, Ontario Deaths, 1869-1937 and Overseas Deaths, 1939-1947, contains almost one million entries which are name search able.

The records for the years 1869-1937 include a name index as well as the death registration entries that were filed. The record below (right side of record) is for David Cohen who died in 1916. The place of birth, date of death as well as parents names are given.


For the years 1939-1947 only the overseas death are recorded. The record below, of Lionel Cohen, who died in France on 19 August 1942, is an example of one of those. He was Killed in Action at the age of 30, while  serving his country, leaving a wife Rose behind.

 These records and the vital information contained in them should be a very valuable resource for those with family in Ontario.
