YouTube.com is mostly known for its viral videos, but in reality, it has become the "go-to" source for specific, graphic information on about any subject. I use it for car repair, building models, fixing things around the house, and many other uses. Not surprisingly, there are tens of thousands of genealogy related videos. If you upload your own videos to YouTube.com, you can create a "Channel" or collection of your related videos. There are thousands (perhaps millions) of channels and many of them are sponsored by genealogically oriented businesses and individuals. You can subscribe to a channel and YouTube.com makes a list of your subscribed channels as part of the startup screen when you go to the website. You can then check to see if new videos have been uploaded recently or since your last visit.
The key to working with YouTube.com is to ignore the garbage.
Here is a list of a few of the major genealogically oriented channels, besides the BYU Family History Library:
- FamilySearch Channel
- Ancestry.com Channel
- Findmypast Channel
- MyHeritage.com Channel
- Legacy Family Tree Channel
The list could go on and on, but you probably get the idea.
