You might take that alphabetized list of words and page numbers for granted, but there's turmoil inside the textbook indexing world. First there's the ongoing challenge of people not understanding what indexing is about, a world where production editors are always just out of college, authors are forced to pay, and jobs are going to countries where English isn't a first language. The rise of e-books has reintroduced a significant problem that first appeared in the early 1990s: wholly inferior to
This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews genealogist Helen Schatvet Ullmann, FASG, CG about her work and books on southern New England. Helen has transcribed several books on early Connecticut court records which are particularly helpful to genealogists and historians researching in the colonial period. We'll be digging into the topics of colonial records, indexing, transcribing, editing and writing reports.

Join Restita and Robert as they welcome shooting instructors Kent Turnipseed and his longtime student/assistant Alan Egusa to the show!
Kent Turnipseed is the founder of the Turnipseed method of shooting. From traditional martial arts Kent adopted the principles of balance, skeletal alignment, muscle relaxation and body indexing which he used to develop a shooting method that utilizes proper body mechanics. It is both strong and relaxed at the same time, and is inherently mobile. It is the modern martial art of shooting firearms.
This technique, while highly ideal for women, is perfect for men as well. The training is based on awareness and proper body mechanics, not strength.
Listen live if you're interested in learning to shoot, or are already an experienced shooter that hasn't yet tried the Turnipseed technique. Call in with your questions!
JOSEPH MACCHIO, author of The Orthodox Christian Conspiracy, lives in Arizona and is currently researching and writing another book on the esoteric history of planet earth. Joseph has a background in English and Education and is a graduate of Adelphi University. Beginning in his twenties he immersed himself in the study of Theosophy for several years. Later he became affiliated with The Summit Lighthouse, a modern Mystery School, and began studying the Teachings of the Ascended Masters, as published by Mark and Elizabeth Prophet. Joseph helped inaugurate the New York City Teaching Center, and as co-director he conducted classes, lectures and seminars on a variety of esoteric subjects such as how to contact the I Am Presence, the use of the violet flame and reincarnation. He later helped establish the Philadelphia Teaching Center. Joseph also worked assisting with the indexing, research and publication of the best-selling book The Lost Years of Jesus and other books by Elizabeth Clare Prophet. During this period he became increasingly intrigued with the real story of Jesus and his original doctrines, and began researching the Gnostic texts, early Christian Communities and uncovering the hidden teachings of Jesus relating to the pre-existence of the soul, reincarnation, karma, and the suppressed book of Enoch and other texts which revealed the presence of fallen angels and nephilim embodied on earth and their influence on the people of earth today, all of which had been suppressed by the Church Fathers. His book is also a compilation of the research of other authors on these subjects, and contains information about Jesus' journey to India after the resurrection. It is essentially a history book tracing Christian-Gnostic and Orthodox doctrines from the author's point of view.
