Heritage Collections

Featured Collection

Geneaologists will be interested in a variety of collections in Héritage. The Trinity and Wycliffe research communities may find special value in the resource’s many parish registers from all over the country, and even parts of the United States. In many cases, government did not start collecting vital statistics until well into the nineteenth century. Before this, parish records and registers were the most reliable sources for this type of information.

Heritage Baptisms

Collections are browsable and can also be searched by keyword. To access the parish registers, one can browse the collections in Geneaology, or enter “parish registers” in the search box and begin their search with the list of provincial and personal registers.
