Death records of Islay for the years 1855 to 1875
...from James Maxwell
I originally produced the spreadsheet
to provide a clearer presentation for my own use, from Ted’s CSV file
A spreadsheet offers one of the most
versatile ways of working with large amounts of data but I was concerned that
some genealogists might prefer not to sort the information with the sometimes
complex Excel spreadsheet functions.
Consequently I have tried to produce an
easy to use spreadsheet with the information
sorted on a year-by-year and parish basis.
For those interested, I have frozen the
spreadsheet column descriptive headings for scrolling convenience and included
additional information in a cell as a “comment”, or (cell notes in plain
language). All that is necessary to reveal the information is to place the
curser over the relevant cell with a red triangle in the top right hand corner.
I am offering this presentation to List
researchers in the hope that they might find it useful in their endeavors.
My thanks to Ted for his
marvelous postings and to Steve, who’s Islay site is a wonderful treasure
trove of an Internet resource.
