Quote from the Repositories section under Archives of Ontario:
"Many records for the old pre-1867 "Province of Canada" (which combined present Ontario and Quebec) are at the National Archives of Canada. Other records for the province and counties of Ontario are at the Archives of Ontario. Many records from both archives are available on microfilm at the Family History Library.

Both the Archives of Ontario and the National Archives of Canada lend copies of many of their microfilmed records to public libraries through the interlibrary loan service. ..."

1. National Archives of Canada became Library and Archives Canada many years ago. The updated title would be helpful to newcomers.
2. I am sure others would agree with me that the Family History Library is in Utah--a long way away from Ontario. Would it not be better to refer to "local branches of the Family History Library"?
3. Library and Archives Canada either have withdrawn their interlibrary loan service or are in the process of doing so. (Oct 2012)
