NORFOLK RECORD OFFICE
The NRO’s site has recently been redesigned, and staff are digitising almost 4,000 parish registers. These are volumes that do not appear on subscription sites, although they hope to license them in the near future. This equates to over 40 per cent of all the registers held by the NRO. Meanwhile volunteers are indexing marriage licence bonds, which will soon join the Norwich archdeaconry licences that are now indexed and on the online catalogue. Volunteers are also indexing Norwich building control plans (1894–1945), which will be searchable via the website.
