Online Records[edit | edit source]

Includes: Yukon Territorial Records, Applications for Marriage Licenses (RG91-B-4, volume 76, microfilm M-2883). This series contains about 750 applications received by the Issuer of Licenses of the Yukon Territory from 1901 to 1917.
Although the original records are held at the Yukon Archives, Library and Archives Canada has a copy on microfilm M-2883. That reel is not available online. You can visit Library and Archives Canada to view that self-serve reel on site or you can order copies.

Ordering Records[edit | edit source]

Yukon became a separate territory in 1898. Some birth records began to be made about 1896, when the Yukon was part of the Northwest Territories. Birth registration continued when the Yukon Territory took over the responsibility in 1898. Marriages and deaths began to be recorded in 1899.

Vital records began to be kept more systematically in 1925. A substantially complete registration of vital records of births, marriages, and deaths was achieved by 1930.

All vital records of birth, marriage, and death must be requested on forms available from the Vital Statistics Agency.

Additional Ideas[edit | edit source]

Some births, marriages, and deaths not recorded in vital records may be in church records.
