DATABASES AS VALUABLE RESEARCH RESOURCES

The Aircrew Remembered team includes mathematicians and programmers who spend a portion of their time working with spreadsheets, lists of data and databases, sourced from original research and from contributing researchers as well as ordinary readers across the world.

The task is time-consuming and demanding because even a small inconsistency in the layout and organization of the data can render a result unusable. Since much of the material was collected for personal interest before anyone had the idea of publishing for more general use, it is inevitable that errors in layout are scattered throughout. Data finds itself in the wrong columns, numbers appear in text columns and so on. Our job is to painstakingly identify and rectify these organizational errors where we can.

That's not to say these databases are 100% accurate in terms of their data because our focus is not on validating specific facts as such, but on getting all the data into a consistent form so our database search engines can function. We therefore encourage readers to submit factual corrections.

Some lists are very small but none the less valuable for that and some are gigantic records representing a lifetime of collation.

Our objective is to present researchers worldwide with as much valuable data as we can manage, in the most useful ways we can find. Our hope is that researchers worldwide will benefit and that this might also lead to the development of more family histories and stories which we would be pleased to add to the site.

We ask any reader who has lists, however big or small, and in whatever condition to contact us. You may be holding just the data a researcher the other side of the globe needs, but if it stays hidden in your private files, its more general usefulness is compromised. We have developed considerable experience in working with data in the form of lists, spreadsheets, research books and so on and would endeavour to present your data in a pleasing and useful manner, with attribution to you if preferred.
