Findmypast serves up new BC, Norfolk and Sussex records this Easter

British Columbia Estate Files 1859-1949 are now available in browse format at Findmypast. You can narrow results by year, document, court, and one of 15 districts. There is no name index except a probate index for the district of Vancouver, sorted alphabetically by last name. This is most useful if you have death information for another source.

Norfolk Bishop's Transcripts 1687-1901 with over 210,000 records and Norfolk Archdeacon's Transcripts 1600-1812 with more than 76,500 records are browse files for baptisms, marriages and burials. Before searching these check out the Norfolk records at FamilySearch.

For Sussex find an addition to the burials collection, this for the parish of Northiam and the memorial inscriptions for Herstmonceux & Friston.
