Original Abstract

This paper describes our design of database for crowdsourcing project designed to transcribe data from old parish book registers - baptisms, weddings and burials. In this database information about names, occupations, addresses or personal relationships will be stored. Database is based on information extracted from real records from various parishes and times, which was done by professional historians. The nature of data and the requirement to transcribe it as faithfully as possible entails several problems. These problems and limitations will be discussed and the resulting database structure will be presented.
