A collection of records comprising 128,000 images of the Church of England parish baptisms, marriages, banns and burials called The Canterbury Collection is now available at Findmypast as follows:
“We are pleased to announce the launch of the Canterbury Collection on findmypast.co.uk
The collection comprises 128,000 images of Church of England parish baptisms, marriages, banns and burials for churches in the historic Archdeaconry of Canterbury.
These images cover the vast period 1538-2005.
You can browse the images 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. This is different to our usual search facility – we’re working on an enhanced records search, which will be available in the autumn. We created the browse function because we wanted to make these images available to you as soon as possible as an interim measure.
We are working in association with Canterbury Cathedral Archives to bring you the Canterbury Collection.
