Introduction to The Cwa Database

Introduction to The Cwa Database

INTRODUCTION TO THE CWA DATABASE N Nick Edwards & Beat Kmin (Warwick) The CWA online database in its current state was formed as a result of several common challenges when designing a database:

How long will it feasibly take to create? How easy is it to use and maintain the database? Where is the data hosted and how much does it cost to host? Can it be updated remotely? Will it take up too much space on the server and / or the users computer? There were several false starts and unsustainable experiments (e.g. trying to put everything on the Warwick server or to type all data afresh on dedicated webpages .) As huge volumes of CWA data already

existed in spreadsheets, Nick suggested to try and emulate the present datas structure, thereby minimising the time it would take to set up. This was made possible by using the service Google Sheets, which provides free online hosting for spreadsheets. Thanks, Nick !

The primary benefit of Google Sheets is that it provides an easy and familiar layout for both the researcher and enduser. The original files can be updated on the fly, meaning that the maintenance required is kept to a minimum. All the updating is done here, with the website linking to

these Google Sheets. So how does it work ? Your access point is on the My-Parish website (over 1.5 K views / month) at: http://warwick.ac.uk/cwad The landing page provides an introduction to the project and guidelines about how to use the database Several sub-pages facilitate different approaches / queries: The alphabetical Parish Master List features all churches and chapels with surviving accounts

Users can check diocesan / archdeaconry affiliations but for most purposes, the County List serves as the most convenient starting-point The CWA Database website hosted by My-Parish, therefore, acts as a sign-post for the various levels of spreadsheet files hosted on Google Sheets. For example - the County List page provides direct links to each individual countys spreadsheet.

From the respective County sheet you can then access individual parishes and wher

e are we now?
