Who else is researching your Norfolk
roots? Queries is one way to find out. Just select your
ancestral surname(s) above to see if another site visitor is climbing the same
These queries have been submitted by visitors to this web site. If you can assist them with additional information, please contact the submitter directly. Likely you both know something about a branch of your family that the other does not.
When emailing a Query submitter, it is best to first send a short email to confirm the submitter's email address is still valid, and confirm you are both pursuing the same ancestor. Then follow up once contact has been established. In subsequent messages, provide the sort of data you hope to receive in return.
Submitting queries to this web site is as easy as emailing us. The trick is to do your homework first. Tell us what you can about the person(s) you seek. A sentence or two will usually do. The best way to develop your query is to review queries already online.
The three most important components of any query are the name of the person you are researching, the time period in which s/he lived, and the geographical area in which s/he lived. Make it easy for others to help you by providing the information they need. How else will they know if their John Doe and your John Doe are the same person?
We do not publish queries without a Norfolk County reference.
Researching more than one ancestor? No problem, just send us multiple queries -- one per surname is the norm.
By default, unless directed otherwise, we will direct responses to the email address that sent us your query. Queries must include the submitter's full name, city and province/state.
Queries are updated annually to ensure they are current. Re-submit your complete, updated query every 12 months to avoid being deleted from this list. And be sure to re-submit any time your email address or research needs change.
Email your Queries to webmaster John
Cardiff. (There is no charge for this service.) We typically update
our Queries list the day after a query is received.
