We have started merge the older databases to create one overarching file, as part of this process we have removed the older databases from the website. Starting with the “Te Tini O Toi” file we are merging the separate databases into one file named “Full Merged Database” as we upload them back onto the website.
Part of this process is comparing birth dates between the files and matching them to each other. We then merge the corrected file into the full database and re-upload the full database to the website.
Another change is consolidating the main waka migration to a single date (1325), if you have any questions on why we have chosen to do this you can email our chief researcher, Graham Smith, by email.
