Key Suffolk resources
Suffolk Record Office has branches in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, and Lowestoft. Each branch has a complete microfiche collection of parish registers, but for other records (or to view original registers) you may need to visit a specific branch. The records of the Suffolk Regiment are held at the Bury office; the Ipswich office holds a collection of Ipswich Prison records, including an admissions register for 1897-99 which includes personal information as well as details of the offence and sentence.
Suffolk Family History Society has monthly meetings in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Ipswich, Lowestoft, Stowmarket, and Sudbury (there is also a group in West London which meets in Hillingdon).
