Back in October 2017 I made a blog post about some very informative and hilarious “mini videos” that were created by James Pylant. For those of you that go back to the 1960s and 1970s think “Monty Python” to grasp the style of humor and entertainment.
Here is a link to that original posting I made of the discovery of these wonderful little videos:
The videos were really, really, informative and funny at the same time, a difficult accomplishment to say the least.
Looking at those videos really made my day. I am still smiling about what I saw and still remembering the major “lessons” to be learned from within the subject covered in each video.
James Pylant actually contacted me via my blog and was very thankful of the blog post I had put together in October 2017 highlighting his original series of “mini” videos on genealogical topics.
James has also shared with me links to 4 more of his entertaining genealogical videos on a variety of genealogical topics. The visual creativity he exhibits with photos, vintage movies and Monty Pythonesque visuals is stunning. Do you need to put a smile on your face? …. having a bad day? …. then just click on one of these videos and all your cares of the moment will disappear for the length of each video.
Here are the links to the next 4 original genealogical videos created by James Pylant:
Additionally, James has shared a much longer informative and entertaining genealogical video that reflects on the research of one of his ancestors. This latest video is titled “Titanic Widow: The Mystery of Addie Bracken,” which is the story of the search for his elusive great-grandaunt.
You can find this 15 minute video here:
Words from my first blog post describing these creative videos still apply to this 2nd set of videos from James Pylant.
“Sometimes our research efforts create more stress than we can imagine. These videos will help alleviate that tension and also give you some insights to improve your genealogy research skills.”
“View the videos … enjoy … get tense again …. view the videos again … and again … and again! Smiles and laughs will soon follow!”
