The Real Face of White Australia: Data

This repository includes data generated through the Real Face of White Australia project, which is transcribing records from the National Archives of Australia.

CSV files

The data/csv directory contains transcribed data in CSV format. These are fields that have been marked by the transcription system as 'complete' -- that is, they have been transcribed by a number of volunteers and any differences have been reconciled through the verification process. There are separate files for each type of document:

  • Certificate of Domicile
  • Certificate Exempting from Dictation Test

Cropped images

Details of portrait photographs, handprints, thumbprints, and Chinese characters identified through the transcription process are included in the data/csv directory. For easy browsing, the cropped images are available on Dropbox:
