BEST WEB­SITES TO AID YOUR RE­SEARCH

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - AROUND BRITAIN -

The archives ser­vice launched its new web­site in June 2016 ( suf­folka­rchives. co.uk). The cat­a­logue is con­stantly ex­pand­ing and staff have al­ready up­loaded im­ages of wills from West and East Suf­folk. Pa­per cat­a­logues are be­ing added, and there are two spe­cial col­lec­tions of digi­tised maps and ar­chi­tec­tural draw­ings.

There’s also the Friends of Suf­folk Record Of­fice ( fosro.org.uk), the Suf­folk Archives Foun­da­tion ( suf­folka­rchives­foun­da­tion.org. uk), the Suf­folk In­sti­tute of Ar­chae­ol­ogy and His­tory ( suf­folkin­sti­tute.org.uk), Suf­folk Lo­cal His­tory Coun­cil ( slhc.org.uk) and the Suf­folk Records So­ci­ety ( suf­folkrecordsso­ci­ety.com).

The Fam­il­y­Search wiki on Suf­folk’s church records can be found at fam­il­y­search.org/ wiki/en/Suf­folk_Church_Records. It lists what is avail­able on An­ces­try and Find­my­past, plus cov­er­age else­where. You can buy copies of par­ish reg­is­ters via suf­folka­rchives.co.uk/ ser­vices/par­ish-reg­is­ter-copy­ing-ser­vice.

Find­my­past.co.uk has a gen­er­ous quan­tity of Suf­folk datasets, mainly through part­ner­ship with Suf­folk Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­ety and the Fed­er­a­tion of Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­eties. These in­clude mar­riage, bap­tism and burial in­dexes, plus elec­toral reg­is­ters and a list of freemen of Ip­swich. The Suf­folk Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­ety web­site has a Suf­folk Parishes page ( suf­folkfhs. co.uk/in­dex.php/ in­for­ma­tion/suf­folk­parishes) show­ing a com­plete A–Z of parishes, and a list of parishes ar­ranged by dean­ery. You could also try freereg.org.uk.
