National Archives Puts Genealogy Lectures Online

For the first time, the National Archives has launched online videos of its most popular genealogy “how to” workshops. These videos cover “hot topics” in genealogical research such as census, immigration and military records. Now, these popular workshops led by National Archives experts are available on the National Archives YouTube channel

The National Archives-produced Know Your Records video shorts cover the creation, scope, content, and use of National Archives records for genealogical research. "The National Archives is proud to make our most popular genealogy lectures available online and ready for viewing by anyone, anywhere, at any time," said Diane Dimkoff, Director of Customer Services.

After clicking on the youtube link, look in the menu to the right for "Know Your Records." This will take you to a screen similar to the one below. Choose the video of interest to you.

You may want to bookmark this site or subscribe to it to stay on top of some of the valuable resources available to genealogists.  Thanks to Barbara Wegley, Recording Secretary, for making us aware that these lectures have now been made available to all online.
