Do you know where in Canada? AFAIK, Ontario has BMD indexed and available
from the beginning (July 1869) through the turn of the century.
The end dates depend upon the type of record (births up to and including
1900 are public, marriages up to 1915 and deaths up to 1925) and every year
another year becomes available.
The British Columbia marriage and death records are indexed with an
internet search engine at
http://www2.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/textual/governmt/vstats/v_events.htm . I
believe they're working on the birth records now.
I don't know about any of the other provinces.

To Canadian helpers,
The story is that my 2x gt grandfather, THOMAS BARNES, on the 1881
census was in the village of Paul with his wife, AMELIA (nee OLDS) and the
On the 1891 census Thomas was in the village of "Trewellard", Cornwall
with a Canadian lady named Elizabeth ?. She was listed as Thomas's wife.
Amelia and one child, Albert Arthur, have disappeared from the scene.
Is there a marriage and / or death index available in Canada for the
period 1881 - 1891 ?
The thought is that maybe the family immigrated to Canada and then
returned after the death's of some of the family, but that Thomas bought
back a female 'souvenir'.
