Hi! All

I would like to have a way to do my application using a simple way.

I have a genealogy site, since a long time ago. I have near 10,000
pages (10,000 names) on a free hoster. Everything works fine. But I'd like to
do the conversion from my FTW (Familky tree maker) to html page ,myself. I've use
VB6 (Visula Basic 6) to do the conversion of all the pages, including all the
html code on each page to link to other page. Like ,click on the father's name
or the childre's name and it load the html page of this INDIVIDUAL.


First : I know very well VB6 , moderate in HTML , poor in Javascript.

Second : I have 10,000 pages (One for each individual), so is there a way
to only have a template page (on the server side = my hoster) and
a few text file (.txt) to pick up the data. Cause there are only 40-50
string data to put on each page but a lot of html code to make a
good looking page. So having a template html page that we can just
add at the right place ,the data of this individual then send it
would be much smaller. So instead of a lot of pages there will be only a few.

Third : I'd like to place on the viewable page, 3 cascading "selection list".
The first one will be populated with the letter from A to Z , from the
HTML code. The second list would have all the name of the family , like
Smith, Johnson, rimes etc , ordered. I already have a text file of
those names. And the third list , will have all the first name like Daniel
Steve, Leann, ordered too, and I also have this ordered text file.
So in a few click , we will be able to go to another individual.


Have try a lot of things but never been able to do it.
I like to keep the text file for data, as it's very easy
to change using VB6 and easy to read, too.

As written before, it must be easy to understand.
I don't mind giving a small donation to have it, cause I really
try hard to do it without been able to do it working.
And it could be useful to other, too.

Thanks at advance.
