TheGenealogist completes Norfolk Parish Records

From TheGenealogist (www.thegenealogist.co.uk):

TheGenealogist completes Norfolk Parish Records

* Over 6.23 million new searchable Norfolk Parish Records released in partnership with the Norfolk Record Office

* This final tranche includes over 5.95 million records for Norfolk

* Plus more than 276,000 records relating to the boundary areas of Suffolk

* Adding to the 3.6 million individuals already released earlier TheGenealogist has successfully completed a project to release over 9.8 million fully searchable records for the registers of baptisms, marriages, marriage banns and burials for Norfolk with images of the original registers.

It is now easier than ever to research Norfolk ancestors in the parish registers of this Eastern English county. With some of the surviving records reaching back as far as the early 1500s, this is a fantastically rich resource for family historians to use for discovering Norfolk ancestors.

Released in partnership with The Norfolk Record Office, the registers of baptisms, marriages, burials and banns of marriage cover the majority of parishes in the Diocese of Norwich. This also includes a number of Suffolk parishes in and near Lowestoft that make up the deanery of Lothingland. Also covered by this release are the parishes in the deanery of Fincham and Feltwell that were part of the Diocese of Ely in south-west Norfolk.
