Woodchurch Local and Family History.

Though this is not in the NWKFHS area I have found many families in our Society area either originated or moved to other places in Kent. It is also an example of what individuals and local societies can and do produce to help the family historian.

This site has free searchable indexes covering Baptisms 1538-1989, Non-conformist Baptisms, Tenterden Vaccinations, Marriages 1538-1978, Banns 1754-1837, Burials 1538-1990, Parish Chest 1633-1849 and Memorial Inscriptions. The site can be found at Woodchurch Local and Family History

Mid-Kent Marriage Index.

The Mid-Kent Marriages Index 1754-1911 is the work of local historians and genealogists David Hills and Gary Samson. David Hills transcribed the marriage records of seven registration districts in the mid Kent area: East Ashford, West Ashford, Cranbrook, Elham, Hollingbourne, Romney Marsh and Tenterden. Also included are marriages for Maidstone (All Saints). Once again this illustrates the work and dedication of local and family historians and societies in providing information and help to fellow researchers. It is also on the Woodchurch Local and Family History site.

The index can be found at Mid-Kent Marriage Index and is searchable by first name, last name and parish. 

Hartley (Sevenoaks) Kent.

Within the NW Kent area an example of the work of local historians providing information and help can be found at Hartley-Kent history  There are details of Assize Court Records 1288 - 1325 giving the names of people involved. There are also baptisms, marriages & burials 1712 - 1832,  Churchwardens' Accounts 1745-1817 and much more.
