Putting Wales on the Map
Residents in Flintshire are being invited to take part in an exciting Welsh
project to put tithe maps online.
These early 19 century local parish maps and the information that goes with
them, are invaluable to show the landscape, land use and social make-up at the
The Cynefin Project is producing digital images of the maps but help is needed
from the public to transcribe the text and schedules and link them to modern
maps. It isn’t difficult to do and volunteers are able to work from their own
computer at home at any time.
Flintshire Record Office in Hawarden is holding workshops next month to show
anyone who would like to participate in the project how they can help.
The sessions will be run by Carys Evans from the Cynefin Project and have been
organised following the popularity of workshops held in September.
Booking for the sessions from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday 2 and 16 December is
essential to ensure that everyone gets some one-to-one attention to be able to
make the most of their time.
Cabinet Member for Education, Cllr Chris Bithell, said:
“This is a great opportunity for residents in Flintshire to be involved in an
exciting and valuable project to bring our history to life”.
