While Alex Cox was away on vacation, FindMyPast released the largest single online collection of Kent, England record, so we had to wait until this week to zoom in and check this out. “The new records have been created from over 3,000 handwritten registers currently held at the Kent History and Library Centre in Maidstone. These registers, covering hundreds parishes across the county, have been scanned and digitised in full colour to ensure the highest possible image quality. Over 2.6 million fully indexed baptism, banns, marriage and burial records spanning more than 400 years of Kent history are now available to search online exclusively at Findmypast.” Source: https://blog.findmypast.com/findmypast-friday-april-5th-2633696716.html
In this episode, Alex returns to the FindMyPast London office and shares a page where parish priest Mark Noble, AKA prolific biographer, includes extra tidbits of info about those in a Kent burial record. DearMYRTLE demos how to rotate, resize, drag and drop the image.
