RootsTelevision Videos from St. George

I couldn't attend the St. George, Utah Family History Expo on February 8-9, but I can watch some of the highlights on Roots Television. It's not the same as being there, experiencing the exhibit hall, attending the presentations, being wined and dined by the vendors, meeting fans of genea-bloggers, but it's fun to see the faces and hear the voices of some of my favorite people. has posted a number of videos made at the Expo, including --

* Family History Expo Overview by Family Tree Magazine

* FamilySearch interviewed by Tracey Long

* Genealogy Gems with Lisa Louise Cooke

* DearMYRTLE/Pat Richley with Dick Eastman

* Ken McGinnis on Legacy Family Tree with Dick Eastman

* Holly Hansen of MyAncestorsFound with Dick Eastman

* Allison Stacy of Family Tree Magazine with Dick Eastman

* Paul Larsen author of Crash Course in Genealogy with Tracey Long

* Jon Shupe of Passage Express Software

* Floyd Nordine of Forever Family Embroidery

I hope I got them all. These are all fairly short interviews and are informative and fun - for me at least!

Oh - last thing - The Genealogy Guys, George G. Morgan and Drew Smith, have a great 12 minute video called Down Under:Florida about cemetery research. Be sure to watch this one - you get to see George and Drew in their element!

You will have to endure several 30 second commercials if you stay long at this site. An alternative is to click on the static ads on the right hand side of the web site - check out those Russian beauty girls too ...

If you have a free hour, go visit and see what genealogy videos excite you. This time is often the most fun hour of my genealogy week!
