If a death record cannot be located in the vital stats microfilms of Ontario death records, where else can one look?

[From Forebears Research] -- I have tried the following: Go into the year and area where you expect it to be and read all the entries. Sometimes it is not spelled or rather not recorded in the spelling you're looking under...but is actually there. I have also concluded after 9 years at LDS that people are simply misinformed sometimes about who and where etc. If you can verify the area in an independent record of the period, it might help - such as a directory or tax or school or anything that positions them alive in that place. I've had some patrons come in where nothing was a match in their pedigree sheets at all!!
