Bulk Entry to LostCousins

I negotiated with LostCousins to enter some of my One Name Study Micklethwaites on to their excellent site. However manually transferring the 380 entries from my 1841 census records would be a pain. So I built on my earlier experiences with Excel and IE (see a previous blog) and needed just 2 keypress combinations and a mouse click to enter all the names – it took just a few hours to do it, including debugging the macros. Excel macros really are powerful – but they do take some getting used to.
