The Challange

Text record

The client had an existing FileMaker Pro database containing multiple sets of archival documents relating to the Métis nation. These documents needed to be searchable and the high resolution archival documents needed to be displayed. In addition, new family relationships needed to be inferred from the documents.

The client was very satisfied and the database is used by the Métis community to establish status and family relationships. The zoomified archival documents have since been used in court cases.
