Linking individuals

The text recognition from all images of the listes nominatives will contribute to build a set of individual data structured by municipality and by census year: millions of lines, each containing the name and surname of an individual (and some of his characteristics). Of course, many of these lines correspond to the same person, observed in different censuses.

Our objective is to link the lines that correspond to the same person, in order to follow the individuals during their life, from census to census. To do this, given the mass of data to be processed, we will set up automatic matching methods.
