1 A historical database: finding our possibilities and limits Case: Oosterhesselen Erwin H. Karel/Richard Paping (Digital Humanities Pitch April 17th 2014)

2 Background of the project Main question: analysing common life in Oosterhesselen Method: combining reconstruction of nuclear families (demographic) and history of housing (social-economic) by a micro-history approach – Developed method should be useful for local historians in the end Sources: Anything that can be found about Oosterhesselen

4 Creating a database Basic knowledge how to create a database Existing genealogical programs not useful: – no possibilities for data-analysing; – no possibilities to combine family data with other data Existing demographic programs are based on processing bulk data (statistics), not useful for a micro history approach

5 Structure of the database person relations farmstead File based on ID number Tables based on sources Queries based on databases profession Linked by ID-number Linked by farmstead number

6 Example person chart

7 Example family chart

8 Some results Number of three-generation families living on the same farm was limited in first half of 19 th century. Geographical mobility among small farmers and labourers higher then often presumed. Rural succession myth: only rich farmer families stay for several generations on the same farm. Small farmers often moved to another farm, their children (also the eldest son) started some where else a farm.

9 Two difficulties Database works, but we reached the limits of our IT-knowledge (unable to make data available on Internet) Gap between approach by historians and IT specialists: – Input-output model (has to be developed during research process) – Loosing control over your data
