Project Description:

Project Description: The Founders and Survivors Project (http://www.foundersandsurvivors.org/ ) has brought together a number of research data sets created from records relating to the 73,000 convicts transported to Tasmania in the 19th century and their descendents to create a population database of national and international significance for historical, demographic and population health researchers.
This project will:
- Develop a toolkit based around the projects XML/TEI workflow for further relevant records sets to be systematically ingested into the population database,
- Build the infrastructure to enable persistent identification and descriptions of derived data sets produced on request from the population database to be made available to the ARDC.
