TheGenealogist has released over half a million new parish records for Norfolk into their Parish Records collection.

In addition to containing the uniquely transcribed records of baptism, marriages and burials with images for over 250 parishes, the records also include fascinating bastardy bonds, examinations, warrants and orders.

With this release family historians will be able to find the details of ancestors baptised, married and buried as well as those that had children born out of wedlock in Norfolk.

The fully searchable records are transcribed from the original records and linked to the images from the Norfolk Record Office and allow researchers to discover:

  • Over half a million individuals in records
  • Names of parents of illegitimate children
  • Images also reveal the names of people standing guarantor for the father
  • The baptism, marriages and burials of ancestors in Norfolk

The records are available to search with a subscription to TheGenealogist. For more information, visit their website.
