New in DANS EASY: Census registers 1849 Leiden

28 April 2020

The dataset “Census registers 1849 Leiden” is now available in EASY. The dataset is part of the Leiden Historical Population Databank 1700-1850.

Combining three different archive sources, this dataset contains information for each householder and their partner in Leiden in 1849 about their profession, place of birth, age, religion, family composition, the number of children, servants, students and the rental value of the house. A useful addition is that by cooperation with the workgroup “Historisch Leiden in Kaart”, every house can also be searched via the current address. For GIS applications, geolocations are available for each building.

The dataset is based on local registers of the census and the “lantern- and fire sprayer money”, both of 1849, and a digital version of the Huisnommerboek of Leiden from 1871.
