George and Drew discuss the transliteration of documents (such as those in Latin), and tips for translating from one language to another. Drew also leads a discussion about using WorldCat to locate local newspapers, partially inspired by a listener's suggestion for using the U.S. Newspaper Program (www.neh.gov/projects/usnp.html). Mailbag and news includes Roots Television's (www.rootstelevision.com) new RootsTube channel, the Virginia Freedmen Extraction and Indexing Project (blackhistorymuseum.org/bureau), the Indiana Marriage Indexing Project (www.indgensoc.org/indexing.html), the storage of genealogy files online, the new Web 2.0-style LivingGenealogy.com site, and the upcoming state conference in Ohio (www.ogs.org).
