Talk:Burham, Kent

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The creation of FamilySearch wiki pages using 1851 as a point in time has disadvantages and is disconnected from the Diocesan and parish history.

Here the entries in the Family History Library holdings do no reflect the replacement of the Ancient church of Burham, and the demise due to structural failure of the replacement church. Whilst it is possible to view two Ancient parishes in fact the parish history is of the remaining parish and benefice for both villages and conservation of old Burham church. I encountered site difficulties in making this entry and the search engine was not reliable and disclosed no entiries at one stage for Wouldham, Kent but this page has now reappeared. Since a number of "site has moved" and site unavailable messages displayed for over 30 minutes it seems that some form of maintenance was shifting data. The initial discussion posted here also failed to display.

I would suggest that the catalogue should contain a cross reference and hope that the parish history will enable the England, Kent, Parish Registers and Bishop's Transcripts (FamilySearch Historical Records)

I sent the message about the catalog to that group. I'm not sure what the specific suggestion is about the England, Kent, Parish Registers and Bishop's Transcripts (FamilySearch Historical Records article. What do you want changed, if anything?
