OHS Pipe Organ Database
Submit a Stoplist, Part One

Thank you for assisting the OHS and adding a stoplist to an existing entry in the Database.

We'll need your name, so the stoplist can be properly attributed to you:

We'll also need your e-mail address, so we can notify you when the stoplist has been reviewed and added to the Database:

The only information needed about the organ itself will be the Database ID number. When you have the Details open in a browser window, you will see the ID number as the final part of the web address or URL. For example, this is the address that calls up the details of the 2006 Ruffatti organ in Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, Charlotte, North Carolina, an instrument that carries the Database OrganID 36584:


(Please note this is only an example. Look at the address bar of your browser to find the correct ID number for the organ whose stoplist you are submitting.

Enter the OrganID for the stoplist you want to submit. (Only the number is to be entered, not "OrganID=.")

Please remember that each time an organ is substantively changed, we need a new data entry page. We hyperlink all the entries for the separate phases of the organ's life, so we can make everything clear as we track the history of a specific organ. Stoplist, photographs and searchable details are all in their proper places.

Please be sure that you are entering the stoplist for the organ at this point in its life. If it has been changed over the years, you can help us in two ways: first, use our search forms to be sure we have another entry for that phase in the organ's life. If we don't, you can add that entry yourself; there's a form for that accessible from the home page. Second, after you're sure we have all the separate entries we need, submit separate stoplists for the individual entries. That way, everyone knows the details that make up the organ's history.

Finally, if you want to send us corrections for a stoplist already in the database, please do not use this form. Instead of doing that, just send details about the needed corrections in an email to stoplists@organsociety.org.

Please tell us the source of the stoplist. For example, a phrase like one of these might be helpful or informative to someone visiting the Database web site:

Enter the stoplist in the space below. You may type the information directly, or you may cut and paste the text from another application. To help us with consistency in our stoplists, please keep these things in mind:

Do be careful and avoid using the tab key within the stoplist itself. Some browsers, such as Internet Explorer, will use that opportunity to jump the cursor to the Continue button.

Scroll over for a sample stoplist.

Please review the stoplist as it appears in the space above. Use the space bar to adjust the appearance and layout.

When you are satisfied with the way the file looks, click the Continue button.
