585,000 new Parish records added to findmypast
I have heard from the nice people at family history website findmypast that they have added new Kent baptisms, banns, marriages & burials to their parish records collection in partnership with Kent Family History Society, making it even easier to find your local ancestors. The latest release includes records from Maidstone, Sittingbourne, Ashford & Rochester in addition to 131 smaller parishes.Â They cover an extensive period of history from 1538 to 2006, allowing family historians to discover and add even more generations to their family tree.
Paul Nixon, Content Licensing Manager at findmypast commented â€œThese new records are a fantastic resource for anyone eager to uncover their Kentish heritage. In combination with our recent addition of East Kent and Canterbury material, findmypast is definitely the go-to place when it comes to family history in the south east.â€
The new records have joined over 40 million parish records from UK family history societies available on findmypast in an exclusive partnership with the Federation of Family History Societies that started in 2007.
Jean Skilling of Kent Family History Society added â€œThe Kent Family History Society (www.kfhs.org.uk) is delighted to be working in partnership with findmypast.Â We hope our indices will be of help to everyone tracing their Kentish ancestry.â€
The records are available to search online now as part of findmypastâ€™s vast collection of parish records, and can be viewed with PayAsYouGo credits, a Britain Full subscription or a World subscription.
While we are looking at the brightsolid group, for anybody with antipodean links then you may be interested in this information that I have been reading.
