C’est d’après ces tables que nous avons constitué ce fichier 1U qui compte actuellement 1500 entrées. Sachant que huit familles sur dix sont dites « ne possédant rien », « dans la misère », « dans l’indigence », il n’y a pas de succession et donc pas de recherche à faire dans la série DQ7 ; sauf pour les familles restantes qui capitalisent l’ensemble de tous les biens. Ce fichier est celui qui présente le plus large éventail des métiers car, avec ces dizaines de milliers de données, il recense non seulement les ébénistes et les menuisiers – l’index en compte actuellement une centaine - mais aussi toutes les professions qui se rattachent à ces métiers.

Open data An introductory overview of Linked Open Data in the context of cultural institutions. Clear labeling of the licensing terms is a key component of Open data, and icons like the one pictured here are being used for that purpose. Overview[edit] The concept of open data is not new; but a formalized definition is relatively new—the primary such formalization being that in the Open Definition which can be summarized in the statement that "A piece of data is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it — subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike. Open data is often focused on non-textual material[citation needed] such as maps, genomes, connectomes, chemical compounds, mathematical and scientific formulae, medical data and practice, bioscience and biodiversity. A typical depiction of the need for open data: Creators of data often do not consider the need to state the conditions of ownership, licensing and re-use. I want my data back. Closed data[edit]

This modest Canadian nurse discovered a natural herbal forumla she took no money for it and died in relative obscurity. Rene didn't feel herself a writer so she never wrote an autobiography. She did, however, write a series of articles entitled "I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse" which was published in the seventies with Bracebridge Examiner. Additionally, a collection of her writing and interviews was published posthumously in the Bracebridge Examiner.

Registres de catholicité (1791-1909) A Paris, la destruction de l’état civil de la période 1793 à 1859 a placé au premier rang les registres paroissiaux en tant que véritable source de substitution pour retrouver l’état civil et la filiation des personnes.Afin de combler les lacunes de l’état civil parisien, l'archevêché de Paris a déposé aux Archives de Paris les registres de catholicité tenus dans 83 paroisses ordinaires ainsi que dans 21 paroisses hospitalières et dans la chapelle de la prison Saint-Lazare.
