Pro-gramming for the amateur-grammer

I have a number of projects in mind that boil down to: make a database, then overlay an interface so that users can do some simple queries from a webpage or (ideally) a webapp on mobile. What programs should I be looking at to make this happen?

So as a simple example: imagine I had the headline from every newspaper going back 50 years. My dataset would look something like:
> headline | newspaper | date | region
Users could then put in their birthdate and city and see the headline from the local newspaper when they were born. Whee! This is the kind of thing I could build in a database, or even Excel, pretty easily. However I have no experience programming for the web or mobile. And I'd like this to have a nice UI.
This is just a hobby (not my job) so I'm willing to spend a little money and a lot of time learning.
