Well, you could click at the top of the webpage and request editing rights for the Wiki,
Rhodri, but I doubt if you will do that somehow.
I take your point, and more realistically when I am next at the National Archives I can
draw the attention of the Mormons on site there to your comments. They are far more likely
to have Wiki editing connections. They may need to talk with Sharon Hintze first, who has
overall responsibility for this side of Mormon activities in England and Wales.
I was surprised by the number of parishes missing years in Glamorganshire, which seemed as
high as all the other counties in Wales combined.
I will try to find out who put this webpage together and when, but I think it must be
pretty recent for it to have been picked up by the Lost Cousins newsletter.
PS I owe you an email with the first will and administration transcriptions.

Subject: Re: [Dyfed] WELSH PARISH REGISTERS NOT ONLINE
The entry for Cardigan is I believe wrong.
The first surviving Register from 1654-1808 is a mixed register.
Marriages up to 1753.
Baptisms and/or Dates of Birth and Burials up to 1808. Faded, stained and torn pages makes
early entries difficult to read.
On some pages, Baptisms, Burials and Marriages in separate columns. On other pages
Burials, etc., are listed in date order, but that can run on into the following year, and
Baptisms and Marriages may appear on a later or earlier page.
At times entries for Burials, Baptisms and Marriages are mixed on some pages in date
There are obviously entries missing from the Register, probably when there a Vacancy, as
some years have very few entries and obvious gaps.
(Whether these could be filled from BT's is questionable but might be worth
Some presumably missing entries have been entered at later dates.
For example for you Brian the children of John Picton over several years are all entered
one page, probably when he was a Churchwarden, and there similar lists for other prominent
It is wrong to say that Baptisms 1654-1808 are not available.
The Registers were deposited at the NLW and Cardigan Church were provided with a bound
copy, which I managed to have photographed.
If the burials have been indexed and scans are available online, then scans of baptisms
are also available online.
Either they have been incorrectly indexed or have not been indexed.
I hope this helps.

One of my major grumbles can be that it is difficult to find references on the main
information providers websites about material that is not in their data collections, but
you might expect to be. The discussion as to how complete are the information databases
you are searching?
So this link from FamilySearch link may be of particular interest for those with Welsh
ancestry [not my research, but from the most recent Lost Cousins newsletter].
