New Projects!


We have two new projects today - York, Yorkshire, England, St. Michael le Belfrey Parish Register, 1565-1653 and Caernarfonshire, Wales, Lleyn and Eifionydd Church Registers and Gravestone Inscriptions.   Both projects are small UK collections with fewer than 200 image sets.

York, Yorkshire, England, St. Michael le Belfrey Parish Register, 1565-1653 contains Parish records with a variety of event types.  There is some interesting spelling of words but the records are easily deciphered.  For the Event Day field there is a dictionary with Latin and Roman numerals to use.  If you have questions or comments, or find cool records post them on the Discussion page.

Caernarfonshire, Wales, Lleyn and Eifionydd Church Registers and Gravestone Inscriptions has records in English, Welsh and Latin.  I used a translator program for the Welsh records I keyed and then could determine many of the fields (there are 27 possible fields to key depending on the records you encounter) after seeing the same words repeated.  If you are up for a small challenge this is the project for you.  If you have questions or comments regarding this collection post them on the Discussion page.

Happy keying!

Where are they ? I havent seen anything new since I Stared 1862 records ave 51 a dayy I check 5 times a day and night Well

it would be very nice to key some of these small projects but they are not there when I go to bed and have gone when I get up!

Marion, Robert,
When you posted there were still 30+ image sets available for each project – now they are all checked out.
Do you have your filters set so you are not seeing all of the available projects? There is a “Clear all filters” button in the upper right hand corner of the Download screen.

Anna,thank you for your reply. My Download screen shows 11 keying projects and 24 review projects as it has done for at least two or three days.

Wasn’t your filters then – I guess you just missed them. That is odd though since when I checked at 7 am MT (in Utah) there were still 30 image sets remaining.

It is so nice to be able to work on a project so close to my doorstep. Please more from York and East Yorkshire.
