This paper reports results from the design phase of EurHisFirm. Its goal is to integrate isolated and badly accessible financial data sets on 19 th and 20 th century European companies so that users can query the data as if they reside in one large database. In addition, it wants to stimulate database construction by providing not only methodology and tools to connect to and collaborate with existing ones, but also a collaborative platform, based on machine learning and artificial intelligence, that allows harvesting data in a semi-automatic way. We present the proof-of-concept results of this platform in addition to the performance of matching algorithms, which are necessary to connect and collate the different constituent databases as well as to connect them to contemporary commercial databases.
