Anne-Karoline Distel gives an introduction to putting archival records online, using sample records from Kilkenny Archaeological Society’s graveyard inscriptions digitisation project.
In the 1970s gravestone inscriptions from 33 graveyards in County Kilkenny were recorded by members of Kilkenny Archaeological Society. Some of the records are handwritten and some are typed. Using this digitisation project, Anne will outline the steps taken to put such records online; including digitising, uploading and editing the records. More information on this, and the Lá na mBan project, which also contains digitised records: http://kilkennyarchaeologicalsociety.ie/
