CERL Thesaurus

"The CERL Thesaurus File is a unique facility developed to address the particularly European issue that place name and personal names in Europe varied from country to country in the period of hand press printing (1450 - c. 1830). As such, it is an essential research tool for scholars and researchers of the period. The CERL Thesaurus file contains forms of imprint places, imprint names, personal names and corporate names as found in material printed before the middle of the nineteenth century - including variant spellings, forms in Latin and other languages, and fictitious names.

Thesaurus Locorum

"Der Thesaurus Locorum verzeichnet in 40.063 Einträgen die Namen der Orte, die bei der Auswertung der Leichenpredigten und sonstiger Trauerschriften in Archiven und Bibliotheken in Hessen, Thüringen, Sachsen und Schlesien in den Katalogen der Forschungsstelle für Personalschriften erfasst wurden. Da die ausgewerteten Sammlungen nicht nur Leichenpredigten aus denjenigen Regionen enthalten, in denen sie sich befinden, erschliesst die Datenbank den gesamten deutschsprachigen Raum der Frühen Neuzeit.

English Heritage Maritime Place Name Thesaurus

"Maritime ports, countries and bodies of water from and to which ships may have sailed or been registered. English Heritage takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. By setting standards that can be adopted by everyone, we can make sure that all records are consistent. In other words, if everyone uses the same words to describe the same monument, archaeological object, building material, etc, then anyone using this common language can easily index, retrieve and understand these records.
