Exclamation Welsh Parish Registers added to Ancestry!

They are split up by county, the same as on FMP (where they have been available for years). Links below.

As with any new databases on there, you may find you get error messages and need to keep refreshing to get them to come up for a day or two.

Anglesey Parish Registers
Brecknockshire Parish Registers (aka Breconshire)
Caernarvonshire Parish Registers
Cardiganshire Parish Registers
Carmarthenshire Parish Registers
Denbighshire Parish Registers
Flintshire Parish Registers
Glamorgan Parish Registers
Merionethshire Parish Registers
Monmouthshire Parish Registers
Montgomeryshire Parish Registers
Pembrokeshire Parish Registers
Radnorshire Parish Registers

Unlike the English PR's, the post-1754 marriages and post-1813 baptisms and burials don't seem to be separated out into their own databases.

Hmm, I can't see any information about who did the transcriptions for these, but I have come across a mistranscription which was mistranscribed exactly the same way on FMP ("Ann Margaret" where it actually says "Ann his wife") so I am guessing that both sites were provided with the same transcriptions. Probably explains why the standard of transcription seems to be somewhat higher than is usual on Ancestry, at least on the records I have looked at so far!

I can't understand how that happened when 'all' the entries on the page say 'X his wife', or have they transcribed them all with middle name Margaret?!

It must simply be that FMP have lost exclusive rights as I gather that the Genealogist also has the Welsh registers now.

That's right, Phoenix.

No, the rest don't have Margaret added. The bit that would be easiest to misread as Margaret would be Morgans, but that wouldn't really fit how whoever it was transcribed it.
