Encapsulate the value part in a class... e.g

        Public Class Name
                Public FirstName As String
                Public SecondName As String
        End Class

Then you can create instances of it and store the instance in the hashtables value part:

        Dim HT As New Hashtable

        'Create a name object
        Dim Name1 As New Name
        Name1.FirstName = "John"
        Name1.SecondName = "Doe"

        'Store in hashtable
        HT.Add("key", Name1)

        'Retrieve the name object
        Dim Name2 As Name = HT("key")
        Dim FirstName As String = Name2.FirstName
        Dim SecondName As String = Name2.SecondName
