I have not studied this in detail but there seems to be a wealth of
information in this collection as he used the wills to construct pedigrees
and also indexed monumental inscriptions. As this was done in the years
1879 -1890 some of the MI's may be no longer available.
It occurred to me that this would be a very good subject for a joint FHS
project as some material covers the whole of Wales. I do not have the
necessary skills to organise this but would be very willing to assist in
There also seems to be other pedigrees in the archives, constructed by
various individuals which would be useful to many researchers particularly
if they were collated and the original material checked by an FHS project.
