Welcome to the Norfolk Family History SocietyFormerly the Norfolk & Norwich Genealogical Society - Founded in 1968
Discovering your Norfolk Ancestors ..........
The Society welcomes people researching their Norfolk ancestors and family history. We currently have around 4,000 members researching their Ancestors in Norfolk, including members from as far afield as Papua New Guinea, Australia, U.S.A. and Canada.
The Society's collection of genealogical resources encompass parish register transcripts, monumental inscriptions, census returns, wills, family trees, pedigrees, photographs, Norwich birth & death returns and a wide range of published work to help trace your family's Norfolk origins.
The Norfolk Online Record Search (NORS) database provides Members with online access to the Society's collection of Parish Register Transcripts, Monumental Inscriptions and other useful research information. Please note that this is an ongoing project with new transcriptions added regularly, although many records are yet to be transcribed there are currently more than 4,000,000 individual records already available to view online.Read more about NORS here or click button below to search NORS.

We are keen to encourage wider access to genealogical resources through transcription and indexing projects and Members are positively encouraged to facilitate work of the Society by volunteering to help with transcription projects or donating copies of their own family trees. Members can also share the results of their own family history or genealogical research by sharing articles in the Society's quarterly journal,"> The Norfolk Ancestor.
New Members are always welcome so why not consider joining the Society and enjoy the benefits membership offers, including the Norfolk Ancestor journal and NORS online research which are free to members.
Groups of the Society operate in South Norfolk and London. Each group organises a varied programme of talks and meetings for people to enjoy and learn more about aspects of family history research. If you are interested in attending, full details of future talks are detailed in our schedule of events.
We provide a bookstall selling material by local and national publishers specialising in family history and historical studies related to Norfolk and East Anglia. We try to offer books not generally available in bookshops. Books can be purchased online or at Kirby Hall.
