Original Parish Registers to be Available Online

Findmypast recently announced that they will publish original Kent parish registers online. The Kent County Council is currently digitizing the records to be available exclusively on Findmypast sometime in 2018.

On May 22, Dick Eastman reported in Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter that a partnership between Findmypast and the Kent County Council will produce searchable collections from the early 1500’s to 1918 in high quality, full color images. It is estimated there will be over 2,500 handwritten parish registers of original baptism, banns, marriage and burials available through Findmypast, who is responsible for indexing, hosting and publishing with search and browse capability.
