We presented our research on using Data Linkage for the automatic discovery of genealogies from historical vital event records at the Explorathon ‘16 event.

The event was held at the fantastic Byre Theatre in St Andrews to celebrate European Researchers’ Night.

In addition to a poster, we designed a card game involving vital event record for a small synthetically generated population. The game helped us explain the problem and demonstrated the challenges we face.
