My current project for IA GenWeb is transcribing the 1900 Census for Lucas County. I can transcribe one sheet in about an hour depending on how difficult it is to read the handwriting. I am really picky! If I cannot figure out the letters, I insert * in its place. I use Excel and created the census form myself.
Using Excel was way too heavy and bogged down the browser when loading the census pages. I downloaded Edit Pad lite and created an HTML template that works much better.
