Mid-Norfolk FHS NATIONAL BURIAL INDEX PROJECT update

The Mid-Norfolk FHS National Burial Index Project has been available for Members to ask for free NBI searches.  Unfortunately, the program does not work on Windows 10, only on the older versions of Windows.  For a long time now it has been on my computer, which was 10 years old and ran on Windows Vista.  Unfortunately, my faithful old computer has finally given up and I now have a Windows 10 machine.

As a result of this the Society cannot, until further notice, provide Mid-Norfolk FHS National Burial Index searches.   Tom is working on a way to adapt the program to Windows 10, and we will let you know when this is successful.

Work in Progress

Please note that this is currently a trial to create a new website for the Mid-Norfolk Family History Society. It is a work in progress. Please be patient while content is added and the design/format is changed and experimented with.

A form has been created for MNFHS members to send feedback/comments about this website, HERE, to help with its development.

The existing, Official MNFHS website is still available at; http://www.tsites.co.uk/sites/mnfhs/

Matt Walker has permission from the committee of Mid-Norfolk Family History Society to develop this website and is waiting for feedback from, and futher discussion with the committee, before this becomes the Society’s official website.
