Subject: [Lon] abreviation on 1881??? (W CNS) ???
Date: Wed, 24 Apr 2002 22:24:53 +0100

Dear all

Does anyone know what the abbreviation (W CNS) stands for in the LDS 1881
census CD's????

It is entered as a birth place for a person of Welsh extraction

I know that the brackets signify that it was either not in the original
enumerators hand or changed / added while preparing the index or was
originally in brackets but the abbreviation only seems to occur a few
times? and only once can I find a CNS in Wales itself, that being a (G CNS)

Hoping someone has an answer to this little problem

Best wishes
