The webite for Ontario Births and Baptisms, 1799 - 1899 states:
"Index to selected Ontario Births and Baptisms. Only a few localities
are included and the time period varies by locality. This collection
contains 455, 469 records. Due to privacy laws, recent records may not
be displayed, The year range represents most of the records. A few
records may be earlier or later."
From this I take it that there will be more records added to this as
they become available. They are asking for volunteers to transcribe
The best part is that it's free.
This website helps explain it.
