TNA podcast - Traces Through Time tool from TNA

The latest podcast from the National Archives in England ( is entitled Traces through Time: a new tool for finding linked records across our collections, a 28 minute talk from Sonia Ranade. Here's the blurb:

This talk introduces ‘Traces through Time’, a project by The National Archives which combines historical data sets and the latest technology to help researchers find linked records across our collections. Starting with service records from the First World War, the project has so far identified and published over half a million links. This work enables new insights from archival records and allows people’s stories to emerge from the data.

Dr Sonia Ranade is the Principal Investigator on the ‘Traces through Time’ project. She has a background in Information Science and, since joining The National Archives in 1998, has worked to improve access to our unique collections.
