If you have a question about a query you posted or would like to post : This is not the place you want to be. Press the Back button on your browser and return to the page you came from to find the name and e-mail address of the County Coordinator or person who manages the query page.

CCHelper will help you organize your data in 3 basic entities. These are:

  1. Researchers: CCHelper will track Name, e-mail address, researcher's Web page address, and a note field.

  2. Surnames: The surnames referenced by the data in CCHelper. There is an option to indicate whether a surname is the primary or alternate spelling, but it is not required.

  3. Postings: Items posted for the county. The current version of CCHelper tracks queries and surname registrations. Items tracked for a surname registration are the researcher who posted it, the date posted, and the county for which it was posted. Query items include all of those of a surname registration plus the query text.

CCHelper will generate Web pages for your data.

CCHelper comes with a set of sample pages predefined for you, but you have the option to change how those pages will look if you like. Click here to learn more about how the HTML is defined in CCHelper.
