Baptisms 1813- 1837 Project


The Society's latest project is to transcribe all Cardiganshire baptism entries between 1813 and 1837. Transcribing those from the parish registers is already well under way and will be followed in future by nonconformist baptisms also.

National Burial Index (NBI) Project

Cardiganshire Project Co-ordinator Beryl Evans

The National Burial Index for England and Wales is being co-ordinated by the Federation of Family History Societies. The aim is to provide an index of burial entries recorded in English and Welsh parish, nonconformist, Roman Catholic and cemetery registers.

The 3rd edition of the NBI Index has been published and the Society has contributed 164,000 entries overall. Further information about the project can be found on the FFHS website.

There is also a list detailing the coverage for Cardiganshire.
