Mennonite Genealogy Data Index: Canada: Alberta

Vital Records Availability

The following chart shows the first year for which Vital Records were officially kept by the various Canadian provinces. In all cases privacy legislation keeps them from being freely available, so the parenthetical period indicates the age of the record that may be acquired/purchased by the general public. Records that are more recent may also be acquired/purchased, but proof of close kinship is generally required.
