I believe Windsor, Ontario is directly across from Detroit in the US. It is in Essex County. You can find more info here on the Essex County web site http://www.rootsweb.com/~onessex/ . As for marriages in Ontario it all depends on the year you want. Check out Mary Crandall's web site Ontario Marriage Registrations at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~maryc/thisisit.htm

I hope this info helps.

There's also a Windsor in Quebec (Richmond County), just north of Sherbrooke. That's where my great-grandparents came from. Dennis

During the 1700s & early 1800s Michigan & Ontario were not the same lands as they are today. They were either subject to France or Britain. If you see Sandwich on your search, it was across the river from Detroit near Winsor, Ontario. Bordors were not defined as such so people traveled freely. Many French families may be found in Assomption Parish but records are in French. The priests usually kept good records, but their handwriting can be a problem. Best of luck. Barbara
