Toronto Jewish Deaths (1939 – 1942)

Plus some indexed burial records 1949-1966

Background: This database offers a thorough and richly detailed index of more than 1,450 Jewish death records that occurred in Toronto from the beginning of 1939 to the end of 1942. Every identifiable Jewish record is included, including those for stillborns. (Stillborn records were often put on a separate form that typically included additional details, such as the age and occupation of the parents, and when and where they were married.) Hundreds of Toronto-area Jewish burial records (1949-1963) are also included. 

Instructions: Enter at least three (3) characters into any of the search boxes to search by first name or surname of the deceased, as well as by father’s or mother’s maiden surname. These alternate search terms may be useful, for example, when searching for a married woman or widow when only her maiden name is known.

There are no required fields. A maximum of 12 results will be returned for any one search; it may be necessary to add more search terms to narrow down the number of results.
