I agree, I'm a young new researcher with pretty much half a tree to trace as
well, - I need the 1901 census to go any farther with my research and I cant
wait to get started. I wouldnt be too despondent about some of the postings
though - I guess it's just frustration.
A site that I've been going through for ages which will probably help you
kill time is the one that was linked on Rob's earlier e-mail. It's brilliant
and the front pages give loads of general details about sources other than
the usual. (It gives the kind of info that the experienced researchers will
probably already know but nobody tells you cos they assume you do as well).
And, of course, you can buy cheap CDs of cool old Norfolk related books;
