- Hi Everyone
I have now updated the spreadsheet for messages received up to 9th June
2005. Sorry for the delay in updating.
Look in the 'Files' section on the Group page.
If you are new to the list please read the file information below.
ABOUT THE DATABASE.
The file contains information taken from emails to date. The
database is an Excel file.
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE CHANGES TO THE FILE ON THE WEBPAGE. Instead of
opening the file, save it to your computer when prompted, and then
open from there and use as you wish . Send all changes in written
form to the group or to Lorna at snag@....
In order to allow you to sort the file I was unable to add a header
row. Therefore notes are in the form of a footer. Read the footer
by either printing the file or clicking on 'print preview'.
I have only included information on persons arrived or born in
Australasia. Any other relevant information is in the Relationship'
column. (e.g.Son 4 indicates he was the son of the person at number
For those unfamiliar with Excel, instructions to sort the file are:
1. Firstly click on the column you wish to sort by.
2. Click on the DATA menu. This will bring up a box.
3. Choose your sorting criteria.
4. Click 'Header Row'
5. Click 'OK'.
I have sorted by 'firstname' but you might find it useful to sort
by 'ship' or 'birthplace'. To place in families do a sort
by 'no.', they will then be displayed in the order in which I have
entered them. Remember, any sorting should be done after you have
saved the file to your computer.
If I have made any errors, or you would like any changes, please let
Please contact me if you have any problems.
