National Library of Wales
Other National Libraries (with Festiniog material)
The scanning process used by the NLW (and no doubt other national libraries) is imperfect, and the output text often contains errors. The search function doesn't seem to be clever enough to search for these imperfections. These misspellings can be searched for intentionally, as shown in the following table.
|11||Festiniog||61124||989||Probably the correct spelling as this is the most frequent one.|
|31||Fostiniog||199||052||"o" and "e" are often swapped|
|71||Festiniog Railway||N/A||369||Phrase "Festiniog Railway"|
|76||Festiniog Railway||25671||672||Two words "Lord Festiniog drinks at the Railway Hotel".|
|81||Lord Festiniog||15590||210||Multi-word searches make many false matches.|
|87||Ffustiniog||7||0||Rare spellings tend to be mispellings.|
To ensure that all matches of F*stiniog are found, it may be necessary to tediously go through all the misspellings, unless that library allows uses to create corrected text in parallel with the imperfectly scanned text.
Note: N/A = Not applicable.
