Tracing your family history
It can be fascinating to learn about the history of our families
- where we came from and how our ancestors lived.
Studying your family history can provide one of the best ways to
understand the past and you can find a wealth of resources to do
this on our Family History pages.
More than 40,000 records of historic landscapes, towns and
villages, historic buildings, archaeological sites and small finds
from across Kent can be found in the Historic
Our survey of Kent's historic towns charts their development
throughout history. This information helps us to understand the
world in which our ancestors lived and explain the changes that
took place in their lives. You can find these charts on our
Historic Towns page.
