Suffolk Burial Index

    Not an online resource, but a very useful tool to supplement Suffolk parish records available online, the Suffolk Burial Index Issue 3 is a CD-rom with details of over 1.3 million burials from 1538-1900. Coverage includes all Suffolk parishes for which records exist, and the additional notes that have been transcribed (such as age, family relationship) are particularly helpful. It is available from the Suffolk Family History Society through their website here or you can order by post. I received my copy in less than a week (2nd class post).

    Do you know how the coverage compares with the National Burial Index at Findmypast? I've ordered quite a few CD ROMs from Suffolk FHS recently, mostly baptisms.

    I've quickly checked a few burials against the NBI at Findmypast and they were all there. However, it's the additional transcribed notes that make the difference - I've already solved a few outstanding problems.
