Indexing Ontario Birth Registrations post 1912
The microfilm of Ontario Birth Registrations is public through births registered in 1917. This is in Archives of Ontario MS 929, Reel 237 and above. Presumably the FHL has copies of these microfilm reels, since it manufactured them for the Archives of Ontario. I presume therefore that they have been digitized. There may be contractual limitations on making these images public, but my only concern is to be able to index them. I am also restricting access to births of people who are at least 105 years old to protect the privacy as required by Ontario regulations. I have already indexed over 3,200 of the births from 1913, 1914, and 1915 directly from the AO microfilm, however at the moment further progress is impeded because the Archives of Ontario has shut down for the duration and I cannot borrow the reels through inter-library-loan even though my local public library currently permits two hours of research at a time. I cannot check the digitization status of the microfilm reels because I do not know the LDS reel numbers, only the AO reel numbers. My existing transcriptions are available in English, French, JSON, and XML on the Web.
I would appreciate some guidance on how I can obtain access to the images of these microfilm reels so that I can continue my indexing project.
