In 1854, the Colborne District became Peterborough and [[Victoria County, Ontario|Victoria County]], the later of which was separated into it's own county in 1863. In 1874 the provisional county of [[Haliburton County, Ontario|Haliburton]] was planned, derived from Peterborough, Victoria, and [[Nipissing District, Ontario|Nipissing District]]. Haliburton didn't become it's own county until 1973.

==Church Records==

Church records can include baptisms, marriages, burials, membership lists, financial business, and other records for a particular congregation.  They may be available online or on microfilm, but frequently they are still with the local church or in centralized archives by religion. The Canadian census records asked for the religion of those listed, so you will be able to narrow down which archives to consult.  For help with writing a letter requesting copies of records, see [[Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy|'''Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy''']].

Guide to Peterborough County ancestry, family history and genealogy: birth records, marriage records, death records, census records, parish registers, and military records.

Map of Ontario Peterborough.png


Peterborough County. centered on Peterborough (city), was founded from the historic Newcastle District in a new Colborne District in 1838. Curiously, census records don't use Colborne as a district label, instead lumping the townships created under Newcastle.

In 1854, the Colborne District became Peterborough and Victoria County, the later of which was separated into it's own county in 1863. In 1874 the provisional county of Haliburton was planned, derived from Peterborough, Victoria, and Nipissing District. Haliburton didn't become it's own county until 1973.

  • ServiceOntario, Birth Records is the only government-authorized source for obtaining birth certificates. Go to the section entitled "Order a Birth Search". This is the most economical, searches the widest time period, and allows searches for people not immediately related. A letter of information is provided rather than a certificate.
  • ServiceOntario, Marriage Records offers a marriage search option and a historical certificate option.
  • ServiceOntario, Death Records offers a death search option and a historical certificate option. Also official death certificates are available to a wider range of relatives than birth and marriage certificates.

Church Records[edit | edit source]

Church records can include baptisms, marriages, burials, membership lists, financial business, and other records for a particular congregation. They may be available online or on microfilm, but frequently they are still with the local church or in centralized archives by religion. The Canadian census records asked for the religion of those listed, so you will be able to narrow down which archives to consult. For help with writing a letter requesting copies of records, see Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy.

These records are incomplete.
