I would love to understand this, but I don’t. I really went in open minded, but I can solely upload files. Python and I are not friends, we do not speak the same language. I think the gender inference has the potential to be very useful in my own research, it would be nice to have a computer assume gender rather than myself so 1) I can blame the computer if the gender is assume incorrectly, and 2) I would not have to hand assume how each person identifies (of course this is a less common issue dealing with Early America).
While I am not sure if I can and how I would get data, I think I would be interested in looking at the Dutch records at the New York State Archive. Although this is not what I originally was hoping to find, I think there are many interesting documents that I have yet to come across in my research that may be interesting to explore. I was hoping to find an interesting Indigenous archive, but most that I came across contained information from later periods. Additionally, I struggle with the morality, of who is controlling what data and how/why it is accessed, of course I have good intentions but that does not mean that all do.

Me now, knowing I tried but everything is still probably wrong:
