Digitisation of notarial documents in a fluvial port of the Sinú River in the Colombian Caribbean (EAP1501)

Aims and objectives

The project aims to digitise notarial documents of the First Notary Office Monteria City, capital of the department of Cordoba, located in the south of Cartagena de Indias, which was an important river port that connected several towns through where the Sinú River flowed, which facilitated the supply of food and goods to the area, as well as the departure of agricultural and forestry products to Cartagena. Most of the memory and social, economic and cultural history of Monteria and the Sinú region is found in notarial documents.
