Bringing a series of documents to scannable condition is an extremely time consuming work (restoration, page numbering, listing the files). The scanning in itself is only one step of the process. Although the digitalizing instruments of the Archives have been developed in the recent period, but the capacity of them is suitable “only” for making few hundred thousand records, while the page number of the kept documents is on the order of hundreds of millions. During the post-production the proper naming and ordering of the files require carefulness.

Database creation is a labour-intensive activity, hence the overwhelming majority of the input data are handwritten in archaic style. Thus these texts are hard reading in some parts.

Digitalizing and database building is carried out constantly in our Archives.
