The Sound Toll Registers Online database at www.soundtoll.nl now includes the registrations of about 1,6 million Sound passages from 242 years between 1600 and 1857.
With the help of currently about 50 volunteers we are entering the data of the remaining 200,000 passages, involving about 400,000 registrations. At the present pace that will take us a little less than four years. We need another 150,000 euros to realize this. You can help us in the following ways.
- Drop us a line stating the importance of STRO and indicating to which institution (if any) you are attached.
- Send us the title(s) of your publication(s) which are (partly) based on STRO and indicate to which institution (if any) you are attached.
- Send us the title(s) of your project(s) which are (partly) based on STRO and indicate to which institution (if any) you are attached.
- If you have a few hours per week sign up as a volunteer at email@example.com and help us enter the remaining data.
- Make a donation. Our bank account is: NL23 ABNA 040 1718 468 (RUG, Faculteit der Letteren, Postbus 716, 9700 AS Groningen). Please state ‘donation STRO, project number 150114251.’
- Let us know to which granters we could send in an application for financial support.
- Circulate this bilingual folder in your network and forward it to likely individual candidates, newspapers, journals, organizations of amateur historians and genealogists and other relevant parties.
