Dutch Ships and Sailors is a project that aims to provide an infrastructure for maritime historical datasets, linking correlating data through semantic web technology. It brings together datasets related to recruitment and shipping in the East-India trade, so far mainly during the 18th century and in the shipping of the northern provinces of the Netherlands. This study aims to expand the existing dataset by adding two more datasets. The research questions are 1) How can these additional datasets effectively be linked to those of the Dutch Ships and Sailors project? 2) Can these additional datasets assist in answering existing research questions in the field of History?
