Ontario Wesleyan Methodist Baptisms c. 1825-1910

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~wjmartin/wesleyan.htm

Over 100,000 transcribed Ontario baptism records for Wesleyan Methodists.  Particularly useful for finding those elusive pre-1869 births...

The navigation of the lists is a bit unusual so make sure you read the instructions! ;D
