United States National Archives YouTube Channel; Many Genealogy Videos Within The National Archives Channel

Hi Everyone!

National Archives LogoOne of my colleagues shared a link with me to the National Archives on one subject that led me to look around for some other resources that can be helpful to genealogists.  But then again, just about anything at the National Archives that relates to the history of the country can be beneficial to genealogy researchers.

I also did notice that there is a United States National Archives channel on YouTube.

You can view all that is within the United States National Archives YouTube Channel at:

When you first peruse all that is there you will find lots and lots of materials.  I did a little more of a refined search and started searching for items of genealogical interest within the entire National Archives channel on YouTube using the search term “genealogy” within the search box to search the channel.

The results of this search also provided me with many wonderful items that areYouTube Logo genealogically related that are contained in the channel.

Here is a link to the “Genealogy” items within the United States National Archives YouTube Channel:

Items come up with and without having the word “genealogy” in the title.  The National Archives must be “tagging” or giving the items a note of being also under the umbrella of “genealogy” that you cannot determine from just looking at the item in the results list.  That is how my search using the term “genealogy” discovered them.

You will find many items of interest within the total National Archives channel.  I just find it interesting to see the varied topics that exist, many of which have rather lengthy videos to view.

I just wanted to make you aware of what is another great genealogical resource on YouTube specifically contained within the National Archives channel.

It is just fun to look through all the varied topics.  Something will jump out at you for you to click on and view.  I started clicking away at many of the small videos on preservation activities related to the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
