Lives in Electronic Enlightenment
With 8,560 correspondents, representing 53 nationalities and 777 occupations (as of Autumn 2016), EE presents a unique online dictionary of historical figures. This is the only resource where historical correspondences are interconnected temporally, geographically and socially, reconnecting people across Europe, Asia and the Americas, from the early 17th to the mid 19th century, and thereby reconstructing one of the world's most significant and largest social networks.
