TheGenealogist completes Norfolk Parish Records

With the addition of 5.95 million records 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. There are also more than 276,000 records relating to the boundary areas of Suffolk.

Released in partnership with The Norfolk Record Office, these registers of baptisms, marriages, burials and banns of marriage cover the majority of parishes in the Diocese of Norwich, some reaching back as far as the early 1500s. Also covered are the parishes in the deanery of Fincham and Feltwell that were part of the Diocese of Ely in south-west Norfolk.

Horatio Nelson is among the famous people of Norfolk in these records; I'm not found!

Findmypast also has a good collection of Norfolk parish records with images of originals.
