The Mid-Kent Marriage Index 1754-1911 can be found at
To quote the site "The Mid-Kent Marriages Index 1754-1911 is the work of local historian and genealogist David Hills, who has
painstakingly transcribed the marriage records of seven registration districts in the mid Kent area: East Ashford, West Ashford,
Cranbrook, Elham, Hollingbourne, Romney Marsh and Tenterden. This online version of these transcriptions was produced by Gary Samson
with the assistance of Bob Chown, both of the Woodchurch Ancestry Group."

I had a call from Jack last evening. As most Listies will know, Jack has been seriously ill with CFS for some time now, and has been badly missed by those of us he's helped over the years. He's received dozens of cards and letters from friends and well-wishers who are subscribers to the DEVON and STEER Lists, and has asked me to thank everyone on his behalf. He seems to be gradually improving, but still tires very easily. He also asked me to pass along his very best wishes to everyone for a happy Christmas and peaceful New Year, Mike.
