FindmyPast Friday – 5 February 2016
FindmyPast Friday this week is comprised of the the release of Norfolk Parish Registers as follows:-
Norfolk baptisms is a collection of over 1.8 million fully digitised and indexed records from 546 parishes across the rural English county of Norfolk.
Over 451 records are now available to search in our brand new collection of Norfolk banns. The collection is comprised of digitised copies of the original registers held at the Norfolk Record Office. Banns records document the three dates on which the banns were announced in the parish church. This practice was to give time to notify the congregation of the intended marriage in case there were any objections or known impediments. If you find a banns record, this is not a confirmation that a marriage did take place.
The Norfolk Marriages contain over 953,000 records and contain excellently digitised images of original parish registers.
Over 1.4 million burial records from the rural county of Norfolk are now available to search on Findmypast. The collection was created by transcribing and photographing original parish registers held by the Norfolk Record Office.
