Data Extraction and Conservation of Youth Welfare Records for the City of Zurich

The City Archives of Zurich preserves over 33'000 alphabetically sorted index cards for youth welfare, gathered from the years 1920 to 1980. 

Until recently, those files were solely available in physical form and the searching process was time-intensive and perplexing. 

Learn more about how digitizing and automatically extracting data from the index cards made more effective search and analysis feasible.
