The past months the IMMIBEL-team has been reinforced by an excellent team of students working on the encoding of the index cards of the foreigners files and samples of the Mouvement de l’Etat civil et de la population (= the yearly compiled collection of figures on the evolution of the civil status and the population) and collecting information on migration from the population censuses (1846-1866-1880-1890-1900-1910) thus creating a empirical databackbone for the IMMIBEL-project.
A great thanks to Edward, Rose, Alex, Jonas, Céline, Arno, Lionel, Kevin, Tatjana and Anke!
