Development of a public database that would enable research into the Muslim community of the Russian Empire from 1828-1918 by converting information found within parish registers from the city of Kazan.

The Central Eurasian Muslim Population Project (CEMPP) will create over time a massive relational database of longitudinal vital statistics and social information gathered from the metrical books (parish registers) compiled for Muslim subjects of the Russian Empire between 1828 and 1918. Funding from NEH will support the first phase of the project whereby, seeking proof-of-concept, we will gather data for approximately 25,000 Muslim inhabitants of Kazan, the third largest city in Russia, as organized around 18 mosques and their parishes. One of our major digital tools will be the open, scalable, and extendable "Intermediate Data Structure" that is becoming the standard for longitudinal databases on historical populations. By means of IDS, our database will join those focused on other regions of Eurasia and contribute to large-scale comparative studies of the life course of Eurasia as a whole.
