The Historical Archives of European Families contain documents (manuscripts, parchments, act of notaries, letters, dowries, wills, trials papers, etc.), and other kind of archival materials (drawings, maps, sale of agricultural properties, description of landholdings etc.), that were stratified over generations or centuries: they not only provide historical-political-economic information, but document also the development - during the time - of  important issues in today's Europe, especially:

  • environmental changes, use of soil and of natural resources, agricultural systems, occurred during the last centuries, that help us understand today's local/regional conditions..
  • the evolution of social conditions - especially women's conditions -  in order to help understand many local/regional differences visible even today.
  • affirmation of the Law systems, and the consolidating of Law procedures with their consequences in social-life and family-groups, in the different European areas, as well as their modification following the change of political regimes.

The fundamental activities are:

- identify the series of Historical Archives useful for investigating the mentioned issues

- fulfill the digitization of the selected archival materials (with common best practices to ensure that it be done in conservative manner; with a common uniform scheme of  descriptive data)

- create ICT applications addressed to a wider knowledge and fruition of them

- disseminate of results.
