I am compiling a county wide name and street index for the 1851 census for
Staffordshire for the BMSGH.
My first thoughts are to use a browser with links between the names and the
folios and the addresses. The data is currently being input from existing
publication into MS ACCESS 97. I can add the required HTML and print to a
file using a generic text printer. I do not know how to use viual basic to
open and close files.
Can anyone recommend a simple book for this exercise please. I have had a
look at the manual on the CD but I would prefer something like a noddy
guide on paper.
Alternatively can anyone suggest suitable software that can be run from a
CD. Can anyone suggest a better method than a browser.
Please reply off list as it is not a direct genealogical question.
