Findmypast adds Kent and Ontario Records

Kent Births, Marriages and Burials
Over 2.6 million fully indexed baptism, banns, marriage and burial records sourced from Kent County Council and spanning more than 400 years of Kent history are now available to search online exclusively at Findmypast.

These additions are merged with Findmypast's existing Canterbury and Kent Family History Society collections to form what they claim as the most comprehensive online repository of Kent parish registers — over 7.3 million records. There are now 2,781,062 baptisms, 2,278,247 marriages and banns and, 2,328,436 burials.

Ontario Genealogical Society Provincial Index
Over 2.6 million records are incorporated in this legacy OGS database. Findmypast's description is scant. There's more at this OGS page. The content appears to be indexed and transcribed newspaper obits from 2002 to 2008.
