Electrical engineer lists and Norfolk church records on Ancestry

Two new databases from Ancestry which may be of interest if your ancestor was a British engineer:

UK, Electrical Engineer Lists, 1871-1930
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9057

UK, Electrical Engineer Membership Forms, 1871–1901
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9058

The source for each is records from the Society of Telegraph Engineers (later, Institution of Electrical Engineers), accessed from the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Savoy Place, London, England.


Also, two Norfolk, England, based FamilySearch databases are available now on Ancestry:

Norfolk, England, Archdeacon's Transcripts, 1600-1812
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9853

Norfolk, England, Marriage Bonds, 1557-1915
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=9855

Full details on those via the links.
