Suffolk Archives
« on: Wednesday 08 September 21 16:23 BST (UK) »
I have just spent 30 mins trying to e-mail Suffolk Archives to try and get a scan of a baptism from 1851 in Ipswich. The "contact us" tab just takes around and around, without offering any possibility of e-mailing anybody.

Fancy new website, but unfortunately totally non-functional.

Does anyone know how to contact them by e-mail?

Many thanks. I'll give it a try.

I never expected it to be so difficult to send an e-mail!

You might be in the UK, in which case this is irrelevant,  but if you are not, I found accessing their website using a VPN, so that it thinks you are in the UK,  actually makes the website work!
I cannot even sign in with out that, so there is obviously some sort of random geo blocking going on. 
Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)
