Findmypast Weekly Update: Norfolk MIs

This week FMP adds 96,820 memorial inscriptions from 255 places to the burgeoning Norfolk coverage. Dates range from 1680 to 2012.

I didn’t have any luck finding the unusually named February Backlog, or any of the Backlog family, as their parish of Shipdham is not included. For perspective, 98,820 entries are less than the total number of deaths in Norfolk in the 1850s.

The National Burial Index on FMP, with 143,845 entries for Norfolk, includes 17 for Backlog, most in Shipdham.

Ancestry’s collection Global, Gravestone Photograph Index, 1265-2014 has one entry for a Backlog in Norfolk. Ancestry also has England, Norfolk Monumental Inscriptions, 1600-1900’s with 31 pages of unindexed MI transcripts with no Backlogs recorded.

FamilySearch and TheGenealogist have no MIs for Shipdham.

This week also sees US Census 1860, Slave Schedule Browse added to FMP, and an incredible 89 new and updated newspapers.
