Don Eckerle of the German Genealogy Group (GGG) and John Martino of the Italian Genealogy Group (IGG) join Jane this morning to talk about the mammoth indexing projects their groups took on when they decided to tackle Long Island records and then New York City vital records and then NARA NYC records and then some more. 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. They'll also share interesting stories from their indexing and tell us about unusual records or people that they came across in the records.
In May 2014 Don, John and their GGG partner Bob Boeckle received the National Genealogical Society's Award of Merit in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field of genealogy.
John and Don are pictured with the other New York attendees at the NGS conference in Richmond, Virginia. They are all members and volunteers for the GGG and IGG indexing projects.
Mercedes AMG driver Lewis Hamilton just won the Italian Grand Prix at the home of Ferrari. The 2008 World Champion was in pole position but got off to a bad start due to car trouble. His teammate Nico Rosberg took the lead pushing Hamilton back, and into fourth position. Pressure started to take its toll on Rosberg and he made two mistakes, the second of which proved to be an opportunity for the faster Hamilton to move back into first position. Once Hamilton regained the lead, he kept it throughout the race. Hamilton's teammate Nico Rosberg came in second and Williams-Martini driver and former Ferrari driver Felipe Massa, crossed the finish line third. The disappointment of Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso's DNF did not prevent the fans from showing their love of the Ferrari F1 team. The Ferrari organization was out in full force along with the Ferrari family. The Mercedes Team is currently in the lead for the constructors’ title, and with six more races before the end of the season, it looks as if Mercedes will maintain their position.
The Italian fans were gracious, fun, and seem to emjoy the race. The after race entertainment was, the still popular Duran Duran.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claims that it is creating a new caliphate. But the terrorist proto-state's perverted creation has almost nothing in common with the classical Caliphate. Tonight we will take a brief look at the historical Caliphate, where civilization flourished for centuries, and which was noted for its tolerance and enlightenment.
