Project goal

To publish all profiles of people born in Edsleskog between 1786 and 1920. And examine their relations to each other.

Project description

Assign profiles to the this project where birthplace has been specified to a certain cottage or village in the parish of Edsleskog and birthdate is verified from birth record books. Always add a short description of birth date and birth date to verify the data has been double checked in the Edsleskog church book of births.

Edsleskog birth records begins in 1786, and this projects aims to gather all persons born there since then and until 1920. Because probably over 4500 individuals have been born in the parish between 1786 and 1920 the project might be over-crowded.

A future way to solve over-crowding is to create sub-projects for each village that has it's own name, and place profiles in the sub-project rather than here.

Another solution would be to create sub-projects for each year, that would also solve the issue with the non-existant sorting of the list of project profiles.
