Notes

1. The most well-known today are the two Canadian projects, the PRDH at the University of Montréal, the IREP (former SOREP) at the University of Québec at Chicoutimi, connected with other Canadian Universities, and the English Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure.
2. The Demolink system was developed by the computer scientist Lars Nygaard, at the Department of Informatics at the University of Oslo. There was a close cooperation with historians throughout the development of the system. A more thorough presentation of Demolink's theoretical basis, methodological and technical solutions, and user interface will be published by Lars Nygaard later.
3. An automatic record linkage project in Sweden experienced the same tendency: Even with a hard phonetic name standardization, the result was that almost 20% of the 256 families were incorrectly split up, while only one was incorrectly amalgamated (Bengtsson & Lundh 1993).
4. 56 heads of households had no code for social group. Individual event records from the land registers were excluded from this analysis as, per definition, they only pertain to farmers.
