MY NEW SITE:
Welcome to Norfolk Tours.
If you are thinking of planning a trip to Norfolk, or East Anglia, with some ideas of where you want to go, or just want to explore Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex & Cambridgeshire, you are in the right place.
I am a local historian, with a great love of my native county and over thirty years experience of researching my own family history (with Norfolk family history back to the sixteenth century) and I can help you to make the most of your trip to Norfolk.
I can do as much, or as little of the organisation as you wish. You are welcome to choose from the list below, or I can tailor your Norfolk experience to your own requirements:
I will attend to all of your needs.
I can also carry out specific research for you before you arrive, pre-order documents at the Archives and find graves if they exist, to ensure that the time you spend in Norfolk isn't wasted.
If you would simply like a knowledgeable, local driver for the week, or a day, I'm your man!
Need Research Carried Out?
I have been researching family and local history in Norfolk since 1977, using less obvious sources as well as the usual Parish Registers and Census. I will be happy to discuss your requirements and offer advice. I do not charge before I have carried out the work, that way, if you are not satisfied, you don't pay!
I also carry out research into the history of properties, be they houses, shops, pubs, Churches or an open field! Please contact me for details.
See the Rates & Services page for more information.
Need Photographs Taken?
Isn't it infuriating? You find where your family were living in the 1851 census but there is nothing about that village on the internet, no books and no illustrations anywhere!
The only way you can get pictures of where your family lived, is to visit, but you are thousands of miles away!
That is where I come in. For the price of a few certificates, I can visit the place you require, take as many snaps as you want, of what you want and send them by e-mail or post. My charges will simply be 40p per mile and £10.00 per hour. If you require hard copies posted, they will be charged at cost.
This offer relates to Norfolk, Suffolk and the edges of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire. If you require places other that those mentioned, please contact me for a quote. I will be happy to visit anywhere in England, but I may need to stay over-night and that will add considerably to your costs. (It will still be cheaper than a flight from Australia, Canada or the USA!)
