The Koori Health Research Database source file (version 3) used to initialise a Founders and Survivors: Genealogical Connections database
This collection is the original input file for the Koori Health Research Database instance of a Founders and Survivors: Genealogical Connections database. It is a flat file containing one record for each member of the population. As well as names and birth/death dates and places, the file records a persons parents (single text field) and up to 3 marriages. Copies of a variety of transcribed birth, marriage, and death certificates are included in each persons record. This means that the saqme source document is often duplicated across different persons.
Reconstruction of birth, death, and marriages in a form suitable to be loaded as life course events is required.
Another major part of the load is to disaggregate source data transcripts so that only one copy of the source is loaded, and multiple citations to multiple events and participants, as per the Founders and Survivors: Genealogical Connections database data model, can be reconstructed. This process will probably require considerable human assistance.
