Thank you E. Childs!!!

When Debbie Downs and I first communicated on the Census project, this was my vision. It was actually in the back of my mind before Debbie started it.  I had several spredsheets already before I even started at WT.

Using census sheets as a source is OK, but we stand a chance of images being duplicated.  If you look at Brown Township in the Union County Master, you will see a completely linked census. Yes, I created most of them. 2 pages, Piece of Cake!!! Only 1 family was already in.

Finding the profiles to link them is actually the hardest part of the job.  The most monotonous is the is preping the completed index from the horizontal spreadsheet to a vertical piping for the width of WT spacepages. I'm sure that there are some who have different thought synapsis, but we have to do what we are comfortable with. I've tried writing in a veritcal manner but it doesn't feel good doing it. So I put up the monotony.

A list of what I have done so far...
