@Romaine Thank you so much for the fantastic work, it is much appreciated! I have linked to the list on the Malta project landing page. Please go ahead and add the monuments to Wikidata using the modified data, but you might want to wait until we have the geo-coordinates in place first.

@Effeietsanders If it is possible for the pdf files to be linked semi-automatically that would be fantastic - does anybody know how I could go about getting this done?
@LilyOfTheWest I don't have the addresses for these monuments, nor do I have any information that could really help distinguish them from one another. The best I could do is number them (e.g. "Niche of St Paul 1", "Niche of St Paul 2" etc.), but that doesn't really help the participants identify which monument each number is referring to, so I don't think that would be of any great help.
@LilyOfTheWest This is because they are different monuments, despite having the same names. I have double checked the cases you mentioned (1849 and 1850) with the official Government list and they are indeed listed as two different statues. I know that this happens on many other occasions, as there are many monuments which share the same name (e.g. "Niche of St Paul") but have different IDs - in all these cases they are different monuments, so we have to work around that somehow.
