On and off for the last few months I've been building an Excel database of names from various passenger manifests from ships that arrived in New Zealand. I wanted to share the database but am too lazy to learn MySQL and PHP. Finally I flound a web site that offers an easy to create, searchable database for FREE. All you have to do is cut and paste your Excel spreadsheet into it. Only down side it that each database is limted to 100,000 entries and I know I'll have many more than that. Guess I'll split the list into seperate databases by the first letter of the surname when the time comes.
I've place the "beta" version of the database online. It seems to be working fine. Now I just have to keep adding to it! If you'd like to see the current version go to this link.
