All persons data are included in a central database, which at the start of the project was filled with more than 70.000 personen, incl the 1,444 Jewish inhabitants of Drenthe in the basis material collected during the preparatory phase.
That is further expanded since then with material provided to the Redaction by volunteers and other interested persons.
For the presentation of those data in various presentation formats we use the program HuMo-gen (developed by Huub Mons and Yossi Beck), which generates online and on your own choice various presentation formats, after you selected for instance a certain person, family name, town or else.
