Loads of New Videos on the BYU Family History Library YouTube Channel

The Brigham Young University Family History Library is making a few waves with its YouTube Channel. During the month of June 2017, we have added 25 new videos on a variety of topics. You can see, if you look closely, that the above screenshot is in the "Video" section of the YouTube Channel. This where you can see all of the videos displayed in either chronological order or by popularity. We now have over 50 videos that have been viewed over a thousand times. You can find the Channel by entering "BYU Family History Library" in the YouTube search field.

The BYU Family History Library has only been offering the live webinars for about a year and we are very pleased with the success of the Channel. We will continue to add about 20 or so videos every month. July will be a busy month for us at the Library because of the Brigham Young University Family History and Genealogy Conference from July 25th through the 28th.
You can still register for the conference and come and enjoy the beautiful (warm) Summer weather here in Provo while you learn from some of the most experienced genealogists in the world.

I will be teaching three classes:
  • July 25: Beginning English Research: An Introduction to the Records
  • July 28: Land and Property Ownership for Genealogists
  • July 28: Making the Most of Probate Files for Genealogical Research

This is my first time teaching at this particular conference.

If you get a chance to visit the BYU Family History Library YouTube Channel, be sure to subscribe. Your subscription is free, but it helps the Library to gain traction and visibility on You have to remember we are competing for attention with a lot of dogs and cats.
