Thank you for volunteering to help with this project
I bought the book Soldiers of the Great War, complied by W. M. Hausee, F. G. Howe, A. C. Doyle, copyright 1920 at a library book sale in Seattle.
It is a three volume set and contains many pictures of the WWI men who died or were wounded in that War.
What I intend to do is place this book online free...
I want to use thumbnails and 100 dpi shots. I need to create an index of the picture pages to allow these pages to be indexed by online search engines. I've already scanned the picture pages and the printed index... What I need is help in creating the index pages These are the shots I'm using.
The pages marked work are OCR reproduction of the index pages... with all the errors you can get from OCR... transferred into notepad
What I need is this material sorted out into some kind of database that would offer these fields
rank surname given name town status page pageso information starts like this
Captains ANDERSON, James A., Summit. BARRETT, Blanton, Atlanta. BATTEY, Louis Legardo, Augusta. HENRY, Dickson Robert, Atlanta. MUNRO, George N., Buena Vista. OVERTON, Macon C., Union Point. PERRY, Cecil P., Dublin. WILLIAMS, Jewett, Athens. Lieutenants ALLEN, Charles B., Atlanta. ANDERSON, John W., University City. BAUER, Koy L., Atlanta. BREWSTER, Eldon F., College Park. BREWSTER, Joseph S., Esom Hill. BYRD, George H., Lawrenccville. CANADY, Guy Wesley, South Atlanta. CLAXTON, James H., Montezuma. COCIIRAN, Robert J., Camilla. EVANS, Beverly D., jr., Savannah. GEORGE, Calvin, Atlanta. GILLESl'IE, Henry T., Maysville. GOLDS-MITH, Carl, Atlanta. HALL, Asbury J., Adel. HAKRISON, Charles S., Columbus. HERRINGTON, William G., Nunez. JONES.

SMITH, Robert D., jr., Atlanta. SUMMERS, Davis K., Jonesboro. SU-l'TON, Wiley C., Atlanta. TATE, Edmund B., Elberton. WALLACE. Robert Owen, Jr., At
would look like this in a database (each separation=a field)
rank surname given name town status page page Capt Anderson, James A., Summit KIA 211 Capt Barrett, Blanton, Atlanta KIA 211 Capt Battey, Louis Augusta KIA 211Hopefully we would be able to send either a Microsoft Works database or Excel
Lt Allen, Charles B., Atlanta KIA 211 Lt Anderson, John W., University City KIA 211
What will I do with it... I'm goin' to place it online with Faces From the Wall in the military section I'm adding.
