Further Details
Abstract A semi-automized code has been used to identify individuals who are refered to on more than one occasion in the source, the "Freiburger Bürgerbuch" (1341-1416). This code is made up of parts of the family and first names. It allows the orthographic and phonetic variants of the same name to be taken into account. The plausibility of the grouped names is then automatically tested. The final decision about the identity of the names has, however, to be taken by the historian.
