This dataset 'Ja, ik wil! - Amsterdam marriage banns registers 1580-1810' and its codebook are the results of a Citizen Science Project, executed by the Research Team Institutions for Collective Action (www.collective-action.info) in cooperation with over 500 volunteers. The project has resulted in a dataset of detailed socio-economic details on over 93,000 couples that registered their prebanns with the Amsterdam Reformed or municipal authorities of every fifth year, starting with 1580 and ending with 1810.
