The citation for this collection does not seem to be accurate. The original probate abstracts that these images represent are not at the National Library of Wales and never have been. Shouldn't the citation relate to the images of the abstract not the original or copy of the will that the abstract was generated from? Darris G. Williams 23:43, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

We base the citations on the information in the traveler. The general description and background in the traveler states "the abstracts were created from microfilming done at the National Library of Wales." The publishable description states "Images of original wills and administrations are available on the National Library of Wales website. This collection is being published as images become available. In addition there is no rights template for this project; there are no Project-wide Rights for this project; and the

Donor Relationship Check has not been completed for this project so I have no other information to go on.

I have already contacted Collection Operations and the Project Manager for additional information. I will correct the citation as soon as I have the correct informaiton. TimothyNB

That is good information to know about how these things come about. Do you mind if I make a stab at adjustments or should I wait to see what the project manager comes up with. It might be good if they worked on it a bit. I don't want to make work for you but would love to see the project manager get on top of this. I'm willing to work with you any way you prefer. Darris G.
