My current focus is to develope 22 parishes within the County of Suffolk, District of Hoxne.  I have put a geographical map on each parish page as such:

I also have created a Navigation Box for the parishes within Hoxne district as such: 

This NavBox is on the Tannington parish page and a few others at the present moment.

My first experience of volunteer work came in 1999 when I adopted a county in the GENUKI network.  My ancestors came from Kirkcudbrightshire in Scotland, so I volunteered to develop the county page and the parish pages.  Since then I have put my own genealogy on the internet using TNG.  TNG is a php driven website.  A php website is like having your genealogy program on the internet.  The names are displayed as needed.  My ancestors came from the parish of Urr in Kirkcudbrightshire.  When I was at the National Archives of Scotland many years ago I gathered some records pertaining to the parish.  I have created the Urr Parish Page and linked some transcribed records pertaining to it.

The only problem I had in creating this table was in how to select cells within the table so I could merge them. Press 'CRTL' key and click in the cells.
