Ontario Death Registration: Display
This is a selection list for identifying the county within which the death was registered.
The Township field is used to identify the city, town, or township where the death was registered. For some counties this is a selection list of all municipalities within the county. However such a list has not been accumulated for all counties, and for those counties where it has not, this is a text input field.
The Given Names of the deceased.
The Surname of the deceased.
Sex of the deceased.
Marital status of the deceased.
Date of death. It is suggested that dates be entered consistently as day, abbreviation of name of month, and year.
Place of death.
This selection list offers a list of individuals in the family tree database who may correspond to this death registration. Selecting an entry in this list will cause a citation to this registration to be added to that individual.
Age at death. This is specified as a number of years, months, weeks, days, or hours, or a combination of these. A number is an integer, optionally followed by a '½', which may be entered as '1/2', with no intervening space. The interpretation of each number is specified by the first letter of the unit of time. Subsequent letters are ignored to permit making the age more readable, for example '7days' is interpreted the same as '7d'. If a number is not followed by a letter then it is interpreted as a number of years.

Birth date of deceased. It is suggested that dates be entered consistently as day, abbreviation of name of month, and year.
