Description of the Records

  • The Norfolk parish registers have three main types of records, (baptisms, marriages, and burials), but there is a large variety of formats that will require careful scrutiny to determine what the type is and what information is available to index.
  • There are many handwritten records that were not recorded on standard forms.
  • Some of the records are in old English, and many images are faded and difficult to read.
  • Each type of record has different fields to index. Check the available information to help determine the type of record.
