Starting May 30, 2015, the following records will be available online through the FSI website for free:

Some Interesting Findings - Moynahan

In reviewing the Moynhan records I was surprised to learn that my ancestors Jeremiah and Mary (Brennan) Moynahan waited two years (12 February 1873) to register the birth of Margaret (23 November 1871) and plead ignorance of the statute.

Some Interesting Findings - Hess

Mary Hess died 30 December 1927 in Chatham, Ontario.

When I looked at her death certificate - which I had not seen until the records were put online bu FamilySearch - the names of her parents were different than the ones in my tree? This will require more research.
