Marriage Boarder to Williams
« on: Thursday 28 December 17 12:50 GMT (UK) »
Looking for details of marriage of Elizabeth Boarder (nee Redford) born 19.11.1889, died 10 Oct 1848, to John Williams in Montreal. The marriage probably took place between 1939 and 1948

Many thanks in advance,
Degsy

Canada does not have a BMD index - sadly there are no marriage records on line for the time frame you require.  Another option would be to try and find a newspaper reports of the marriage.

Some copies of Montreal Gazette are online...............Jan 1, 1878 - Nov 20, 2006 so you should find the 1940's on this link

Thank you very much, Sandra, her death in October 1948 was reported in the Montreal Gazette so will plough through and see if I can find anything. Thanks for the info re lack of BMD records.

Unfortunately from a genealogy point of view - privacy rules in Canada are quite strict.
