Arcanum text processing - hundreds of thousands of pages, online, free

permanent link

Thanks to a prominent member on the Hungarian Csaladtortenet (Family History) list at RadixIndex, several of Arcanum's upcoming or not widely published resources have been mentioned. These large corpora offer valuable information for the family historian, too.

The first of the announced collections - with less info for the genealogist - was the minutes and documents of Hungary's Parliament, 1867-1918, 312,000 pages.

The second one is more promising for the ancestry researcher: publications of Hungarian museums is an almost complete collection of the yearbooks and other publications by county museums and by several other museums in Hungary - 1500 volumes, 370,000 pages. (announcement)

The third set is the one that has or will soon have the beef. Publications of Hungary's archives is a growing corpus making the volumes of archives available and searchable online. (announcement)

The museum and archives collections use the same navigation systems. Search is made possible by full-text keyword search and the volumes can be browsed going down from the article level to the page level. The texts are predominantly in Hungarian with eventual abstracts. The technology is dual layer PDF: texts were OCR-ed and dual layer (text and image) PDF pages were created.

Bon app├ętit!
