Default Simple database

I have quite a deal of information stored in hanging files for my family history. I have it stored in 4 drawers under the names of each of my 4 grandparents. Each drawer contains files mainly labelled with names of people. It is a reasonably efficient system but to make it easier to locate what I want it really needs matching with a database system. I have had a play with Excel, which is with my version of MS Office 2003 (no MS Access), and perhaps it will do but before I commit I would like to have other people's thoughts. I have not used a database before and therefore am wary of buying something with a steep learning curve.
