Tylers Collection East Kent now online

I have been alerted to another dataset put onto Ancestry.co.uk website. This time it in the Tyler Collection which is held by the in Canterbury, Kent.

Knowing nothing about this collection I read up about it on the ancestry site. It seems that Frank Watt Tyler compiled 3,240 books which contained transcripts of parish registers, monumental inscriptions and wills. His area of interest was East Kent and the records run from 1538 – 1874.

This sounds like one of those little know resources that are now available to be used by a much wider audience. So anyone with East Kent families this could be worth a search.
