Cydweli/Kidwelly

Several of the Cydweli/Kidwelly transcription sheets do not look good. What's the best way to tackle a Field No. entry that reads 980 to 999 for example, (there are many like this). 980-999 can be found on sheet 16 for that parish (in Carmarthenshire).

  • Looking more closely on sheet 1, I now see how the map and the apportionment sheet is marked up to tackle this. See for example the first two entries on sheet 1.
  • Provided the field number text on the map exactly matches the entry in the Apportionment, the linkage will work.

    Where there's just one or two combined fields, I would split them onto separate lines. With your example however, there obviously isn't space to do this.

    Instead, tackle the map... I would delete the individual field numbers for 980 to 999 and then re-tag the fields under a single label "980 to 999".

    I'll try it on the actual document and see how it works...

    It will be interesting to see how the website

    deals with the method you suggested.
