Norfolk Registers Arrive Online

A treasure chest of information from the registers of numerous parishes in Norfolk has been launched on the FindMyPast website.

The scanned and indexed images of pages now available relate to over 4.6 million records, harvested from 546 parishes. The events recorded include:

Norwich Market
Norwich Market Place
  • Baptisms - 1,833,772
  • Marriages - 953,616
  • Banns - 451,354
  • Burials - 1,444,275

The collection ranges in date from the early 16th century to the early 20th century. However, details are not available from every parish for the whole of that timespan.

Norfolk is still a largely rural county from which vast numbers of people have migrated, overseas as well as to other places in England. So its parish registers will be of great help to researchers whose main focus so far is elsewhere, as well as to those already aware of their Norfolk heritage.
