During the 1500s and 1600s, the Heralds visited each county and recorded the pedigrees of families. In many cases the pedigrees date back to Norman times (the 11th century).
These records form an extremely important source of information for family historians. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Harleian Society published a large series of books containing transcripts of these ancient documents. The books also include descriptions or illustrations of the coats of arms of these people.
These volumes are pedigrees of Norfolk and Suffolk families that for the large part 'DO NOT' appear in the Heralds Visitations of the counties, although there a few exceptions to this.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

I am a member of the Norfolk Family History Society in the UK, but whilst they have been in COVID lockdown, they have not been able to access the resources at the Kirby Hall Library to assist me with my research.
Therefore I decided to purchase my own copy of the CD to continue my research
Highly recommend the CD as it consists of two volumes with an easy quick search facility for each volume.
Have made a few discoveries using the CD, particularly as it covers UK families in the Middle Ages in an era when records are not always available online.
