Project Instructions This collection contains information extracted from gravestones from several churchyards throughout the hundred of Lleyn and the commott of Eifionydd in Wales. It also includes explanatory notes respecting ancient houses, families, and other parts of the district. Some birth, marriage and death records are also included.

Latin, Welsh and English languages are all represented in this project. This being the case, not all "keywords" may have been represented in the instructions. Resources such as Google Translate, may help in deciphering what to key.

Sometimes the same record will be transcribed in multiple languages. For example, John Smith's tombstone may be included in both Latin and Welsh on the same image. If the record is in multiple languages key from the English version if present, if not key from the Welsh record. Only key the Latin record if that is the only version on the record.

If both death and burial dates are present, key the death date as the event date and key "death" for event type.

Due to the variety of records you may encounter there are 27 possible fields. Review the fields carefully to ensure you are capturing all of the data from the record."
