Two local genealogists featured on Blog Talk Radio program

Two local genealogists, Don Eckerle and John Martino, were recently interviewed on the “Forget-Me-Not-Hour” on Blog Talk Radio.

Don is a member of the German Genealogy Group and John is a member of the Italian Genealogy Group. Don and John, along with another volunteer, Bob Boeckle, received the National Genealogical Society Award of Merit for 2014 in recognition of exceptional contributions to the field of genealogy.

During the interview, Don and John, speak about the volunteer indexing projects they have worked on since 1999. To date, Don, John, Bob and over 2,500 volunteers have indexed 16 million records. The majority of the projects focus on New York City and Long Island vital records and naturalization records.
