Don and John will discuss what records they have done, what records they intend to do, and what the differences in their groups' databases are. They will also tell us how they manage their indexing projects with more than 2,000 volunteers.

What should you consider in buying a new computer?
Why would a Boomer become one of the oldest new firemen in America?
What is the truth about the senior single sex scene?
Why is genealogy becoming so popular and how do you get started.
Find out about these subjects vital to all adults on this segment of Boomers Plus Radio and listen to our other programs for more 'adult' subjects.
This week we discuss the condition of Americans and their growing rage against tyranny. Have we become too soft? Americans are angry and are at the tipping point. Americans have been acting as civilized as possible in expressing anger at the level of greed, the obvious seizure of power by the elite and government protections of corporations.
From the Bundy ranch to standing up for the homeless we see all levels of activists and concerned citizens taking action against twisted laws or the lack-there-of regardless of the punishments put in place to suppress the people.
With all the facts coming out, most Americans seem ready to hit "like" or "share" instead of using Constitutional powers granted to them by the creators of the nation. Are we at the point of civil war or the second American revolution?
Also, we begin a "Leak of the Week" as we go back to WIKILEAKS and discuss and aid in the distribution of information to the public provided to us by the great Julian Assange. The patriots that have given us reason to revolt already exist Beyond the Veil.
