My main areas of interest for family research are Reydon, Snape and Tunstall
Have looked without success for CD's of Birth, Marriage and/or Death/Burial records for these areas. Reydon I know is St. Margaret's, but don't know the others.
Has anyone any ideas on this, Would be grateful for any suggestions Y.

You can buy copies of the original Suffolk parish registers from the Suffolk Record Office. They are either on microfilm or ficrofiche. Even if you do not have your own fiche or film reader, you can take them to a local library with a reader & view them there. I found the staff very helpful when I bought copies from them. If the parish you want is on a microfilm, you may end up with other parishes on the film as well. These are copies of the original records - baptisms, marriages & burials - not transcriptions.

Thank you Bo-Peep and Wirral for you suggestions. Sorry for the delay in answering - have been on holiday.

Did look at Parish Chest but couldn't find my particular parishes. Will try Wirrals suggestion if I can find a library with the necessary readers. Many thanks for your help. Y
