Norwich Freemen Records Online

Those wanting to trace their family history in Norwich can now do it for free online as a set of historical books are being made available on the web.

To access the records go to: http://nfro.norwichfreemen.org.uk

The books log the names of every freeman in the city since 1317.

Called the Freemen Registers, they are an important resource for historians and those tracing their family history who lived and worked in Norwich.

The online database, called Norwich Freemen Records Online, is designed to get more people interested in their family history.

Nigel Back, chairman of the Freemen of Norwich committee, said: “The online registers will be an invaluable resource for historians and family history researchers with links to Norwich. “This new online database can be far more easily accessed than the old books held in the Norwich Record Office.”
