  • Formerly as the Norfolk & Norwich Genealogical Society (NNGS) a Journal was issued in 1972, renamed to The Norfolk Ancestor in 1977 it remains the quarterly journal of the Norfolk Family History Society (NFHS).

  • This theme has continued and expanded as the present magazine also contains a large section of information about The Society and its activities including - letters, meetings and events, book reviews, new member's names and their interests, requests for and offers of assistance with family history research and much more.
