BOOK - Vaughan Townships York County Ontario Methodist Baptisms 1842-1898
Compiled by: Ruth M. Burkholder

Coilbound... 14.95 (C$)

The Baptisms which have been indexed in this volume are those found in the General Register of Births and Baptisms which was created following the Annual Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada in June 1843. It was felt necessary to keep such a Register in "the Conference office in Toronto to ensure the preservation of documents and to afford the baptized and others facilities of reference".

The system was simple -- a ruled book was given to each minister by the Registrar each year so that uniform information was gathered throughout the Church. At year's end the old book was turned in and a new one given. Then a clerk in the Conference office copied the entries into this General Register.

Ministers were requested to turn in any registers prior to 1843 for copying into the General Register. It does not appear that many were recieved based on the dates in the Register. Most entries are between 1840 and 1873, but this is not a complete record of births and baptisms for these times.

The Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada created the original General Registers and they hold the births and baptisms of that denomination up until 1874. With an amalgamaition of Methodist church records for 1874 to 1884 are those of the Methodist Church of Canada; and with further joining of churches from 1884 to 1910, the records are for the Methodist Church of Canada.

Entries in the General Register are arranged according to the circuit, the township, town or city in which the event took place. The entries in this index give the complete entry from the register, but are arranged in alphabetical order BY THE FATHERS NAME so that they appear in family groups. The 794 entries in this book come from the pages in the General Register that are headed "VAUGHAN" except those shown as Volume 4 Page 279, which is labelled "Tosoronto and Essa twps".
