The best way I've found to do what you are wanting to do is to enter all the data into a genealogy program that will produce web pages for you automatically. I use Reunion 8.0 on a Mac. I'm sure there are others for the PC. I've been looking at a free version of Legacy <>;. Don't know yet if it will produce the pp.

My program produces family web pages plus individual pages: Person Sheets. Simultaneously it indexes every name and allows a return email and postal mail address for corrections. You can look at Reunion at <>;

Let me know how it works out:

Subject: Opinions wanted please.

I am going to be transcribing about 1000 old birth records for my county web page and would like suggestions as how to format the pages. The original doumentation is in a large ledger with 18 columns of information. If I do these in a table format it will make for a really wide file. I did a similar thing with death records which you can see here:

Is this wide format pleasing or can someone suggest an alternative way of doing them. I also thought about doing a surname index and linking the names to something like this:

The second option would require many smaller sized pages, whereas the first option could be broken down into 26 larger pages separated alphabetically.

Would appreciate your opinions....thank you,
