READ ME FIRST FILE


Here is the first draft of the list of cemeteries that have been
sent to me. Almost all the files are in ascii format. I noticed
that some of the ascii files have a wrap-around. Sorry about that,
I'll try to fix it by changing the margins in future versions.
There are a few files that did not change easily to ascii and both
versions are included where possible.

US-CA-SC.LST is found in the WordPerfect format only. This will
be available in phase 2. It is the list of those interred in the
Santa Cruz cemetery.

US-CT is available in two formats. US-CT is in WordPerfect format,
while US-CT.ASI is the ascii version. The ascii version has a
wrap-around making it almost impossible to figure out.

Connecticut has been indexed and Phase 2 is complete. That
information is too great to include here as the list includes over
10,000 names. You may request information form me or as shown in
the Connecticut file.

This is not in any way to be considered a final format. I expect
a program to be written that will have a menu allowing you to
access the country, or state, then city you wish. The program
will be menu driven. Another possibility would be to put it out on
microfiche.

All names submitted using my program will be added to the PEOPLE
FINDER. If the other names come in a format that I can convert
they will also be added. If you have not yet begun phase 2 PLEASE
PLEASE consider using my program. It is on the GSDS named
JCEMETER. If you cannot get it from there I will be glad to send
you a copy.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
