GB1900

            Areas needing more work

            GB1900 is progressing well and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find places without any transcriptions. However, we would like to encourage our volunteers, once they have finished the areas which hold a special significance for them, to move on to help us complete those areas where less work has been done. As well as the dot map webpage where you can find monthly snapshots of progress, we will be providing here a list of suggestions of areas that need Transcriptions and/or Confirmations. There will be variety in terms of locations in different parts of the country as well as size of areas needing completing . Typing the name of the place given below into the GB1900 search box and pressing the Go button should take you to the location where work is required. A direction is given in brackets following the name where the area needing work is not quite where you land using the search term.

            N.B. The majority of initial transcriptions in Wales came from the earlier Cymru1900Wales project. This means while there are very few places without any transcriptions, there are large areas in Wales which do need confirmations.
