The Following is the opening of a news article, from the NHK Easy News Site for kids and foreigners

福岡県ふくおかけん太宰府市だざいふしの遺跡いせきから、戸籍こせきのもとになったと考かんがえられる、7世紀せいき終おわりの、日本にっぽんで最もっとも古ふるい木簡もっかん(=字じを書かいた木きの板いた)が見みつかりました。

I am having trouble with the 戸籍こせきのもとになったと考かんがえられる part. I get the general gist of the sentence is that they Found some really old family register in Fukuoka Prefecture, Dazaifu city, at some ancient ruins, and that it dates back to the end of the seventh century. Im just having trouble with this part. Thank you

They found Japan's oldest mokkan*, dating to the end of the 7th century, which can be thought of as the origin of the koseki**, in ruins in Dazaifu City, Fukuoka Prefecture.

*Strung together wooden strips used for writing in ancient times
**Family register
