Websites

Ancestry

Ancestry.co.uk Censuses from 1841 to 1911, Births Marriages and deaths index, plus many other features. Subscription, but excellent value. Other useful databases that I have found are Wills, Probate Calendars, Phone Books, Ship's registers and Passenger lists and many many more. Of the main geneaology sites has in my opinion (and others according to many web forums) by far the best user interface.

Cityark

cityark.medway.gov.uk The web presence of the Medway Council Archives. Searchable database of piece-level descriptions of original historical archival documents, and imagebase of scanned images of the most popular records, including most parish registers. The individual images are not indexed but you can often find a reference on other sites. Completely free.

The National Archives

nationalarchives.gov.uk A wealth of information about the National Archives. Much information is available online - for example wills and military records can be downloaded for a small fee..

North West Kent Family History Society

nwkfhs.org.uk Society for the study of family history, genealogy and heraldry in South East London and North West Kent. Many useful publications, including CDs of parish registers

Genes Reunited

GenesReunited.co.uk  Contact others with common ancestral interests. Subscription required to contact.  I found it useful in the past but changes they made a couple of years ago have rendered it pretty useless so I have cancelled my subscription.

Family Search

familysearch.org "The largest collection of free family history, family tree and genealogy records in the world". Compiled by The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, but as people can upload directly to the site some of it may be misleading. Nevertheless can be extremely useful for locating individuals before 1837.

Findmypast

findmypast.co.uk Full Births, Marriages and Deaths indexes, plus census. As with Genes Reunited they have recently "upgraded" their website and the response from users seems pretty universally negative. Certainly I will not be subscribing until I see more positive feedback.
