Ellis Island saving tip

For those using Internet Explorer and Microsoft's Excel spreadsheets, and
happily gaining access to Ellis Island Data Base, this is a way of saving
for later searching and sorting the recovered data.(once you are in !):

1 - Open Excel
2- There are different ways to highlight ("paint") the information in the
Ellis Island Data Base, and copy it to Windows' clipboard and >from there to
Excel. This is one:
3 - Go back to the Ellis Island results page
4- Left click at the space before the beginning of the data you wish to
copy. A good place is before the E in Exact Matches (number of matches)
before the first result.
5 - Apparently nothing will happen - don't worry . Go the space after the
last information in the last results line, press Shift in the keyboard, keep
it pressed.
6 - Left click after the last information in the last data line. The
selected data area will be highlighted.
7 - Let go the Shift key, and Right click anywhere in the highlighted area.
Left or Right Click on Copy. The data will be copied to Windows' clipboard
8 - Go to the Excel spreadsheet. Place yourself in the top left cell of the
free area where you want to paste the info.
9 - Click Left button, then click on Paste.
10- The data will be copied in different columns, ready to save in your hard
disk in a searchable and sortable spreadsheet.

Now you can cross your fingers, go to the next search page in Ellis Island
web site, and repeat >from 4 . Save the spreadsheet frequently. Have a
succesful search!
