Archive Conservation and Recent Purchases Supporter Event
Friday, 1 December 2023, 2.30pm to 3.30pm, at The Archive Centre, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DQ

Learn about the conservation of two documents relating to the Norfolk coast, its erosion and the right of wreck. This work was funded by money given to NorAH in memory of David Stannard, a former trustee of the Charity. NorAH has recently helped the Norfolk Record Office purchase several documents to ensure they are available for free public consultation. They include manorial, business, and school records; and a sketchbook of Hilda Zigomala née North which will be on display.


Savings on Research and Craft Workshops at the Norfolk Record Office

NorAH members also get free access to the Norfolk Record Office’s research workshops, which include how to trace your family history, house history and First World War ancestors, saving you £5 for each and half price on the Norfolk Record Office’s adult craft workshops, saving a further £5 per workshop.
