Rod Neep's "Archive CD Books Project" is co-operating with the Family Records Centre(FRC)  in London by transferring as much "book" information as possible to CD-ROMs.

This is to save wear-&-tear on the old volumes which are suffering from extensive handling by visitors to the FRC.

In future researchers will be able to read the same information on screen at the FRC
or can purchase copies of the ROM(s) for perusal elsewhere.

 All the CDs will be for sale by the Archive CD  Books Project, at anything between GBP 8.50 and 14.00 depending on the  particular book.

It is the sale of the CDs that will actually pay for the scanning work to be done (at no charge to the FRC) and also pay for renovation of the original books.

Garboldisham, Gasthorpe, Kenninghall, New Buckenham, North Lopham, Old
Buckenham, Quidenham, Riddlesworth, Roydon, Shelfanger,South Lopham, West

the same name, came into being with all others on 1.7.1837, and was
abolished 1.4.1902, when the various parishes were incorporated into
Depwade, Wayland or Thetford districts.  There were two sub-districts,
Banham and Kenninghall.  GRO index references are in volumes XIII (up to
1851) or 4b (1852 and after).

Information in this form was obtained two years ago from
http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/blangston/genuki/reg/nfk.htm - I haven't checked to
see if it is still available.
