East Kent parish records now fully searchable

FindMyPast has had the parish registers for those churches within the Canterbury and Maidstone Archdeaconries’ online for some time, but as browse only. So the announcement that they are now fully indexed will be good news for those with Kent ancestry. The records date back to the start of parish registers in 1538 and span up to the 19th century. The original records for Canterbury are held at the newly re-opened Canterbury Cathedral Archives, whilst the Maidstone registers are held at the History & Library Centre at Maidstone.

    Great news! My LATTER ancestors came from near Maidstone. I last looked at the Barming and East Farleigh PRs 30 years ago. It will be great to check them out again esp if I can download digital images!
