Indeksering af navne

Indexing of Names

Indexing of names is about getting as many names entered from the old church records, census data, Military levying rolls and whatever there might exist of old documents. Once the names are entered into the database, they are available on the search page. If someone finds an indexed name in a search and press the button for more details, then the original document where the name is written is displayed. It is then up to the user to read the rest of the document. Indexing is a quick and easy method to get many names made searchable, and we hope that many more will help in this exciting project, and thus get as much indexed as possible.

Tilknytning af indtastede personer til originale opslag

Assign people to the original censuses

The trascription of censuses has been around for many years but there has never been a direct link between each person and the original source. This project aims to make that connection. When the search function has come up with a match, the original census page is also available to view. This means each found person, can be verified in against the original census

Categorization of profession

What were the normal professions in the 18 century? How were the different types of professions distributed across the country? How many doctors were in rural parishes vs towns? This project aims to categorize the different professions.
