Global Genealogy has recently reprinted two publications of early Ottawa BMDs
Birth, Marriage and Death Abstracts – Bytown Gazette 1836-1845 Bytown Independent 1836.
This book, originally published in 1979 by the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, is a facsimile edition of the original 1979 book.
Birth, marriage and death announcements of apparent Canadian relevance are cited as well as news reports of accidental deaths. The abstracts are not literal transcripts but information of genealogical interest has been retained including names of employers, ministers and priests to aid in identification.

Index to Birth, Marriage & Death Notices – Bytown Packet 1846-1849
This is a facsimile edition of the original 1974 book originally published in 1974 by the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. It is more than just a nominal index. Much important information is included with each entry.
