Get Started!

The letters in our project are divided by theme based on the type of network implied in the text of the letters. We hope that these themes can help you choose an area of interest. For example, Material Goods include commercial networks and discussions of the movement of books and materials. Social networks discuss family, friendship, health, and communication. And Women's Lives include estate management and family life. The available themes will vary over the course of the transcription project.

About PRINT

Welcome to People, Religion, Information Networks, and Travel – Migration in the Early Modern World (PRINT). This project is a collaborative effort to trace the communication networks of early modern European religious minorities and the ways they shaped the dynamic patterns of migration in the Atlantic world. Housed at the University of Central Florida, PRINT seeks to create a database of correspondence and then visualize the complex connections that arose in response to religious persecution and missionary work. Our goal is to work with archives and citizen transcribers to provide access to documents not readily available and to create tools to foster new textual and network analysis.
