FMP launch Canterbury Collection

Announced by findmypast.co.uk and now available are 128,000 images of Church of England parish baptisms, marriages, banns and burials for churches in the Archdeaconry of Canterbury covering the period 1538-2005. Parishes in Canterbury, Deal, Dover, Folkestone, Ramsgate, Sandwich and many smaller Kent communities are included.

These are images organized by parish, event and year range. When you select a parish from the drop-down list on the search page, you'll see the type of event (baptism, marriage, bann or burial) for each parish, as well as the dates that the records cover which are invariably more restricted than the full range to 2005 .

There is no name index at present; an enhanced search capability is planned for later this year. There's more on the scope of the records at http://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/life-events-bmds/canterbury/browse-images/
