William Morgan 1620 Welsh Bible

The digitization of the 1620 Welsh Bible was still only partially completed on 2007-02-04, the last update of the kimkat page. The page states "scanned texts (23) not yet corrected". Of these uncorrected books, five of them also have the scans available as JPG downloads. Work seems to have come to a standstill. I have not been able to elicit any response from the website. Proofreading and textual corrections would require access to a printed copy of the William Morgan Bible. David Haslam 06:25, 5 August 2008 (MDT)

23 of the OT books and 21 of the NT books are also available in text format as Welsh/English interlinear editions. One curious feature is that the book of Psalms is also available in three further interlinear editions: Welsh/German, Welsh/Maori and Welsh/Russian. David Haslam 06:43, 5 August 2008 (MDT)
Counting items in the table, there are in fact only 21 books described as "uncorrected scan of the text", rather than 23 as stated in the revision history lines above the table. David Haslam 06:46, 5 August 2008 (MDT)
Recently, there has been some new activity on this site, during January and February 2009, after a long period of inactivity since February 2007. The editor wrote, "There are still 30 scans (with the addition of Yr Apocrypha 2009-01-21) to be corrected; we hope to complete them by the end of February 2009".
