Norfolk Family
History Society


The Norfolk Family History Society's Bookshop contains a good selection of books on Norfolk families and history related to the county and other locations in East Anglia. We are able to supply a wide range of titles by publishers specialising in family history and local history and mainly offer those books not generally available in bookshops.

Material available includes our own publications, such as the Society's Norfolk Genealogy series, which provide a unique resource for those seeking to trace their elusive ancestor. Originally published by the Norfolk & Norwich Genealogical Society, these colloquially became known as the 'Blue Books'.

Although called the 'Bookshop', publications include CD-ROMS and maps. The Bookshop also sells secondhand books of interest to the family historian which have been donated to the Society to raise funds.
