The other two videos have already been recorded and will be uploaded shortly. We are planning another extensive round of webinars and videos from the Brigham Young University Family History Library in September when school starts again for the Fall Semester. 

You can subscribe to the BYU Family History Library YouTube Channel by clicking on the subscribe link on the Channel's webpage.
