FAQs about our products and services - the Answers
First, and foremost, the East Kent Families Database is far from being 100% complete. It may be that your particular family did not stay at one of the parishes transcribed long enough to have a baptism, marriage or burial performed there.
Also, have you checked for an alternate spelling of your family surname? While some of the alternate surname spellings are easy to spot and construct, your particular surname may be one of the unusual names that has an entirely different looking alternative spelling. For example, the surname 'Reakes' and 'Wreakes'. In this instance, you would have to check both under the 'R' and 'W' surnames before you could be certain that your surname does not appear in the database.
