Findmypast Friday: Peruse Thousands of new Kent Parish Records

 I received this information from Findmypast today:



Unearth roots in the Garden of England...

This week, we've added thousands of baptism, marriage and burial records from Kent, England.  Spanning several locations across the county and dating as far back as 1558, these new and exclusive additions can enrich the Kent branches of your family tree with fresh discoveries.

What's more, we're welcoming a brand-new title to our ever-expanding newspaper archive, alongside extensive updates.

With thousands of new records from Charlton, Cliffe, Greenwich, Hadlow, Ightham, Woolwich and beyond, we've grown our Kent collection again.

We've added over 10,000 marriage and banns records from four Kent parishes.  This latest tranche spans almost 400 years from 1558-1955.

Was your ancestor laid to rest in Kent? Discover the details behind their burial with new records covering six parishes and hundreds of years.
