Prosopographic Database "Victims of the Holodomor of 1932–1933 in Dnipropetrovsk Region": Theoretical, Methodological and Technological Aspects

Yurii Sviatets

Abstract


The aim of the article is to represent the idea of a roll-call database about the victims of the 1932-1933 Holodomor and the scientific perspectives of its use in historical research.

Research methods: logical-linguistic, comparative, system-structural; database technology.

The main results: the article highlights the theoretical, methodological and technological principles of projecting a relational database of prosopographic data of victims of the Dnipropetrovsk region during the Holodomor; the main directions of its use for studying social and demographic consequences of the mortality of the population of the region are indicated. Practical importance: the experience of forming a database can be extended to data from other regions of Ukraine; the use of a database management system will allow relevant search of data by different criteria (age, gender, social origin, ethnicity, causes of death); the database can be used as factual material in genealogical research.

Originality: generalized experience of designing relevant databases; the author's conceptual model of the prosopographic database was developed taking into account the specificity of the source database of the problem.

Scientific novelty: the conceptual model and practical implementation of the prosopographic database about victims of the 1932-1933 Holodomor according to archival and published sources were first proposed.

Article type:analitycal-applied.
