Talking Norfolk parish registers online

Norfolk parish registers have been released today on the pilot familysearch site. They're not indexed tho only browsable images.

Enjoy, think it will be late night for me!

How do you get to browse the images? I'm just getting an empty search box.

Look just below and there is a magnifying glass with browse our record collections click on it and then select Europe from the drop down menu.

If you look down the list Norfolk has a red asterisk by it.

Let me know when you get to the images.

When you want to save an image you will have to put a (dot) jpg like this ----> .jpg extension on the save file otherwise you won't be able to open them.

In the corner of the page there should be a smaller image in a box there's a plus and minus click on the plus... and use the hand cursor to move the page about.
