Findmypast Weekly Update

Kent records keep accumulating.

This week, for baptisms, the Kent parish list shows 14,240 additions between 1842 and 1934, the majority from Margate parishes.

The latest additions for marriages and banns, between 1852 and 1939, are also dominated by Margate for the parishes of Holy Trinity,  St Paul, Cliftonville and All Saints, Westbrook.

According to the parish list, most burials are for Margate, but the FMP announcement mentions “over 500 Canterbury Cathedral burial transcriptions and images covering 1955-1967!” The parish lists may still need to be updated.

Elsewhere, 187,771 previously redacted records from the 1939 Register for England and Wales are now available. These are added when deaths are reported, or people pass their 100th birthday.
