For a Tyme Lost – event at Gressenhall Church on Saturday 10th March – 7.30pm

Bridget Yates has asked us to publicise a forthcoming event in Gressenhall Church which she thinks will be of interest to some MNFHS members.
The evening includes a talk on music in the church from the building of a West Gallery by Robert Halcott in 1635, through to the installation of an organ in 1911. During the nineteenth century there was a church band, mainly members of the extensive Tye family, and some of their instruments, which are now in Strangers’ Hall Museum, will be on display for ‘one night only’. The talk will be illustrated by The Gressenhall Singers and a band of local musicians using the early 19th century ‘Gressenhall Tune Book’. The Gressenhall Ringers will be welcoming the audience with 17th century ringing on five bells.

Mid-Norfolk FHS NATIONAL BURIAL INDEX PROJECT update

The Mid-Norfolk FHS National Burial Index Project has been available for Members to ask for free NBI searches.  Unfortunately, the program does not work on Windows 10, only on the older versions of Windows.  For a long time now it has been on my computer, which was 10 years old and ran on Windows Vista.  Unfortunately, my faithful old computer has finally given up and I now have a Windows 10 machine.

As a result of this the Society cannot, until further notice, provide Mid-Norfolk FHS National Burial Index searches.   Tom is working on a way to adapt the program to Windows 10, and we will let you know when this is successful.
