Hi, Graeme. Did you manage to make use of that old book on a wiki?
With your interest in genealogy and Wikia, you should be aware of Familypedia, the genealogy and family history wiki. It's one of the biggest wikias and has clever software for displaying tables and charts semi-automatically.
Check out w:c:familypedia as soon as you can. We will make you welcome, and some of us may find your book has a few of our ancestors if you can give them articles that link to ours.
