Findmypast adds Norfolk Electoral Registers and Bishop's Transcripts

Findmypast now has a large collection or printed Norfolk Electoral Registers 1832-1915, indexed with 4,557,906 entries. You can follow year by year the type of property and if owned or rented land or property (such as a freehold, a farm, or a house). For example, my ancestor in Deopham owned a mill which was initially rented out.

I am truly interested in this, so thanks John.

My ancestors lived right on the border of Norfolk/Suffolk. One can walk easily between the parishes. So, good news for one family historian.
