Poll On The Right Sidebar Has Been Closed For “Have You Watched Any Genealogy Teaching Videos On The Ancestry.com YouTube Channel?”; Results Indicated

Hi Everyone!

It is amazing that about  2 months has passed on the life of the poll I had on the right sidebar of the blog since April 6, 2015.  It is time to move on!  I think a new poll question is in order!

The poll had asked the question “Have You Watched Any Genealogy Teaching Videos On The Ancestry.com YouTube Channel”?

The results of the poll showed the following from the 44 total respondents that took the brief time to provide their “Yes” or “No” response to the question.  The numbers show that 21 responses (47.73%) noted they have viewed teaching videos at the Ancestry.com YouTube channel  while 23 responses (52.77%) indicated they have not viewed any teaching videos on the Ancestry.com YouTube channel.

I am actually surprised at the almost equal numbers of responses indicating  “Yes” and “No” viewing of material at the Ancestry.com YouTube channel.  I actually thought there would have been more indicating viewing of the channel.  The fact there were more “No” responses might simply have meant that readers were not aware the channel for Ancestry.com existed on YouTube.  Perhaps this question has now made readers aware of this wonderful resource to be used to learn even more about the various aspects of genealogical research.

Yet the number of “yes” responses certainly indicates knowledge of this resource.  Online genealogy teaching videos are a great resource for the researcher to add even more skills and knowledge to their research abilities.

Check out this great resource.  Just go to YouTube and enter in the search term AncestryCom (note that there is no “.” between “Ancestry” and “com” like a normal URL name) to get connected to this nice channel.  Or the direct link to the Ancestry.com YouTube channel is:

I am always looking for a larger response than even that which I just saw!  So come on down ——  affix your opinion as a “Yes” or “No” when so asked to the varied polls on different topics in the world of genealogy and family history research.  Your answers count.

I plan on putting up a new poll rapidly.  Come back for that one to see the new question being asked.

A big thank you to all of those that took the time to respond to this just recently closed poll.  Take a look at the results of that poll to satisfy your own curiosity.

Don’t forget to visit my Poll Archives as part of this blog.  Look for the link at the top of the homepage of the blog where it simply says “Poll Archives”.  In here you will find the statistical results of the 20 previously active polls in addition to the poll that is generally “active”.  If you were not aware of this Archive, you may want to visit to see what all the previous polls were about.
