   Abstract. The main purpose of this study is to create a database that correlates the data from the current catalogue of Romanian earthquakes (ROMPLUS) with the information from other available catalogues, research studies for the events produced between 984 and 1899, historical documents, and mentions in archives or historical papers. The database will contain, in addition to the ROMPLUS available information, the type of event (tectonic or anthropic) and the references attached to each event. In the second step of our analysis (events recorded after 1900), the database will be updated and connected with the catalogue of the earthquake mechanisms.

Key words: Earthquakes, catalogue, macroseismic data, seismic database.
