FamilySearch Has a YouTube Video Channel

Hi Everyone!

On a recent Indexing Newsletter I received from FamilySearch, one of the articles in the newsletter indicated that a recent video was just uploaded onto their YouTube Channel.

I was not aware of a dedicated channel from FamilySearch on YouTube.  I checked it out and thought there was some interesting material that resides on this channel.  Most of what is there is short in duration per video, most seeming to be in the 2 to 6 minute range in length of video.

The videos do appear to have been professionally made and “glitzy”, at least the ones I looked at.  They do not appear to have been created as a “home video”.

There are some varied topical videos here.  There are some cute videos in which children are asked about what genealogy is.  There are also some videos on the Granite Mountain storage vault in Utah.  There are even some “How To” videos, most again being in the 3 to 4 minute range.

There appear to be about 30 videos available at the site.

There are currently 396 subscribers to the site.

You can even leave comments at the site, although I only saw a total of 8 when I looked.

I would definitely take a look at the “channel” on YouTube.

You can visit it at:

FamilySearch YouTube Family History Channel

I think you will enjoy what is there.
