Please make contact if you wish to help in anyway with any of the projects or if you have any ideas for new projects that could be undertaken by the Society.
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.
The Society has worked with Findmypast to transcribe part of the 1851 census for Cardiganshire. We were given piece no. HO107/2481 to transcribe, which included many parishes in North Pembrokeshire. The following parishes were transcribed by the Society and now appear on Findmypast
