The original parish registers are not available to the public.
These books contain some of our most important records and can be very fragile.
Repeated handling causes wear and tear to the books. Do not contact parishes for access to these registers.
In order to facilitate access and preservation, ARCAT has microfilmed the registers from all parishes within the Archdiocese of Toronto. Visitors are welcome to make an appointment to view microfilmed records prior to 1911.
In the 1980s, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also microfilmed our parish registers up to the year 1910. We have compiled a listing of the microfilm reel contents and call numbers.
Please note that this is NOT an ongoing program; we no longer permit third party duplication.
The LDS Church has discontinued its microfilm circulation program and is instead digitizing its microfilm collection for access online through FamilySearch.org. This website is free but requires you to create an account to access any digitized records.
Log in to your FamilySearch account in a separate window, and then click on a Parish Name in our listing below to view the respective parish's records.
Please note that not all of each parish's records are currently digitized. If you notice gaps in the records available, consult the listing of the microfilm reel contents to determine if the records exist but were not digitized.
Please contact ARCAT to make an appointment to view records that FamilySearch has not yet digitized.
