The National Archives has released a series of online videos of its genealogy workshops on YouTube. Topics include introductions to military, immigration, and census records.

 

The National Archives has also made a wide range of other material available on its YouTube site. For more specifically genealogical presentations, select the “Know Your Records” and the “1940 Census” playlists. You can also learn more about the presidential libraries; view War Comes to America (1945), part seven of Frank Capra’s Why We Fight propaganda film series; and watch 1930s films about national parks.

 

FamilySearch also offers genealogical instruction in its Learning Center. Currently, the site features two formats, video and audio with interactive slides. Presentations include twenty-five “Five Minute Genealogy Episodes,” an England Beginning Research series, a U.S. Midwest Beginning Research series, and much more.

 

Ancestry.com’s Learning Center also offers a number of videos on information sources and research challenges.

 

Britain’s National Archives offers a selection of family history videos on topics including civil registration, the 1911 census, the manorial documents register, and child emigration to Canada, on its website.

 

FindMyPast.co.uk has also made several video family history tutorials on British research available on its website.
