Purpose[edit | edit source]

To fix the outdated tables on each parish page in Kent, England.

The first part of this project will be deleting the old table and pasting the new code.

To find the names of the neighboring parishes, use [http://maps.familysearch.org/ England Jurisdictions 1851 Map]. In this site, search for the name of the parish, click on the location "pin", click Options and click List contiguous parishes.<br><br>

[http://www.kent-opc.org/index.html Kent Online Parish Clerks] has indexes available for select parishes. Records are also available at the [https://www.kent.gov.uk/leisure-and-community/history-and-heritage/kent-archives Kent Archives].



4. Add the actual parish name where it says "PARISH NAME" (found twice near the top of the newly-inserted code). Do not put the parish in all caps. (For example: Abington Piggots not ABINGTON PIGGOTS)

5. Put "Adding more complete online church records table" in the Summary box and then click "Save page."

If More Than 1 Table[edit | edit source]

Finished Examples[edit | edit source]

See these wiki pages for a final example of what the table will look like:
