Looks like excellent news to me.

That's the document I spotted earlier this year, haven't so far been able to find anything subsequent to it.  Suffolk CC do have a public site listing contracts and tenders but there wasn't anything showing last time I had a look.

Oooh, fingers crossed for some Suffolk parish records being available online. I've got so many relatives in Suffolk, it's too much to research in a couple of days at the record office. It was number 1 on my genealogy wish-list this year!
Transcribing Essex records for FreeREG.
Current parishes - Burnham, Purleigh, Steeple.
Get in touch if you have any interest in these places!

My latest information is that the new Suffolk website, expected to host digitised wills, marriage licences and gaol books, is due to go live in May. The digitisation of parish registers project will start to progress again in April. The delays are because they have many large projects on the go as well as maintaining the current service.

Well it doesn't appear to have launched yet, but found this http://hessett.onesuffolk.net/assets/Hessetts-Past---Documents/Autumn-2016-Suffolk-Record-Office.pdf which states that the SRO will be charging 6 per Will for a digitised copy from their new website (second double page in pdf).  Now I appreciate it costs money to digitise things, but as other ROs have probably found, the higher the price, the less you sell and I for one will not be purchasing many from this new facility. :-X  If you think what you get from an Essex RO SEAX subscription, including access to all original Wills, Suffolk really are setting their price high and I can't think they will get as much business as perhaps they might if it had been set about 3.50, the price that the National Archives originally charged for digitised copies of PCC Wills 10 or so years ago.  I don't expect Suffolk council tax payers to subsidise the service, but as the digitisation work is not being done on demand, it does seem rather high. :-X
