Here's the Findmypast Friday new records releases for 8Jan 2016. I need to take a look
at those Kent records!  

Here's their announcement:

This week's Findmypast Friday marks the release of new records from the English counties of Devon and Kent. Amongst the new additions are a fascinating collection of electoral registers that not only reveal where your ancestors lived, but also who they voted for! They also allow you to uncover records from dates that are not covered by our England & Wales Electoral Registers.

We've made new additions to our Kent baptisms, banns, marriages and burials, giving you the chance to trace your family's roots all the way back to the time of Henry VIII.

This week we've added over 106,000 new records including:

Electoral registers from Plymouth & West Devon, England, 1780-1973
Explore over 74,000 records to locate your ancestor's family home and find out who they voted for with a collection that spans three centuries.
