This is an outline of the contents of the Genuki Norfolk pages. It
only shows the main topics within each section, so that you can see how
the information has been arranged. There are two main categories:
- Information about Towns and Parishes
- Wherever possible, information is stored on a parish page. For
example the transcription of a census or a directory is linked
from its parish page.
- Information about all of Norfolk
- Information is stored here when it is about all of Norfolk, or
covers a region of Norfolk, or when it is impossible to divide
into parishes. For example links to libraries, societies, church
gazetteers, lookups, military records, occupations, etc.
Please follow the links below to see what is online.
