Mid-Norfolk Family History Society

104 Norwich Road, Dereham
Norwich NR20 3AR


Our local members have an interest in family history in general but do not necessarily have genealogical links to this part of Norfolk. However, we have a large number of distant members with interests in Mid-Norfolk and we aim to assist in their research by collecting and recording family history information from within an area of approximately 10 miles around Dereham.

There are approximately 3 million objects in the collections of the NMAS. Most of them have been catalogued on the databases and we have over 300,000 records in Collections Online for All, covering all subjects and museums. More work remains to be done however. The Costume and Textile collection (about 15,000 items) was recently added but Natural History collection at Norwich Castle (about 2 million specimens) is still being documented electronically.
