I've made 2 pages stored on flash under Wiki project.  One page has the company results as I find them.  Page two has a bunch of cities and their counties.  As I go through each page, located at

http://archive.org/stream/rosterofwisconsi01wisc#page/15/mode/1up (Co. D)  I am tallying a different way.  Page one, I count up all the men from a city, tally it with 11111.  Page 2 is tallied with 2222.  and so on.  This lets me see quickly if I've tallied a city from that page.  So 11122334 would equal 9 men from that city. 


Next time:  I am ready to tally up all the counties for co. C.  They are located on the cities and counties page on my flash, under Wiki projects.
