Many more Suffolk marriages

Over 71,000 additional marriage records extracted by the Suffolk Family History Society are now available on the FindMyPast site.

They join previously released entries to bring the total number of names in the online index to more than 340,000. It is easy to check which parishes are included so far in the index and the year ranges covered. However, bear in mind there may be gaps in some of the ranges given.

Marriages are key events in family history, not least because they introduce a fresh family name to explore. However, weddings were frequently held in a parish that was not otherwise known to be connected with either or both of the parties involved. So the latest improvement to the Suffolk Marriage Index will be of great help to numerous family historians.

Suffolk FHS offers a warm welcome and a helping hand to anyone researching their roots in Suffolk. If your family come from that part of East Anglia, why not visit its website to find out more?
