Triple thanks! Finally found my gt x 2 grandmother's baptism which also gives her birthdate and is a year later than on IGI! Plus another sibling for her. Yippee!

I thought of you when I was going through the Docking burials and marriages.

Spotted a few that might be yours last night but it was midnight so I thought you'd probably look yourself today

I got loads from Docking, Beetley, Great Massingham and Carbrooke. Two of my mother's ancestor strands originated from Norfolk.

Thank you very much Jay for that link it probably would have passed me by for a few weeks/months.

Have found loads of my half sisters family on there already.

Will save my sister from travelling into Norwich from Docking now to view the records.

It's great to know you can take your time, I'm sure I missed a lot rushing through microfilm at Norfolk Records Office, knowing they were shutting at lunchtime!!!

The earlier they go back though I was looking through 1700s late last night and the images are difficult to read at times so its hard going. But like Nell says you can take your time and it all doesn't have to be done in a rush.

Edit to say: I have also been doing a lot on my Scottish side so I'm all over the place I don't know if I'm coming or going

Pleased to hear everyone is having success. Just like being in the archives but you can shout as loud as you want when you find something without being told to shhhh!! And having never managed to get down to NRO it's great.

I've found out quite abit lastnight, tho there's a few parishes that i'm interested in that don't seem to be listed.

Happy hunting

I've spent loads of time looking at Rockland St Peter & think I may have found my family. I have already listed all instances of my names from looking at fiche, so am able to add more now. I am sure I will be posting questions soon.
