In the first place, Matricula is a platform for providing church registers in the form of digital pictures.

But the simple presentation of digital images is just the basis for further scientific research. Therefore Matricula supports all those, who are willing to create corresponding registers in a standardized form. Matricula is open to any cooperation, whether with individuals or charitable institutions, given that scientific and technical minimum standards will be respected and the data gained will made available for the public free of charge on non-commercial platforms.

ICARUS / MATRICULA is already cooperating with the following initiatives:

  • manages the import of the created files into system
