New Roots Television Videos

There are several new videos on Roots Television (www.RootsTelevision.com) that may be useful to beginning and experienced genealogists alike.

* Getting the Most Out of a Genealogy Conference by George G. Morgan. This is an 88 minute presentation, but useful for persons who have never attended a conference before.

* National Genealogical Society - Conferences - an NGS 3 minute, 37 second video using short quotes from experienced conference goers.

* California Ancestors.org - a California Genealogical Society (CGS) animated video, 4 minutes, 4 seconds long, that highlights CGS activities.

* Freedmen Indian Territory Obit Project - a slide show video, 5 minutes, 51 seconds long, showing freed persons from Indian Territory with photos, gravestone photos, obituaries. Very effective!

* Backing Up Your Genealogy Files - Elyse Doerflinger's 6 minute, 22 second video.

I try to visit Roots Television on a regular basis, and receive Megan Smolenyak's Megan's Roots World blog and the Og Blog via email so I can keep up with this genealogy video channel. You can subscribe to the Roots Television Newsletter here.

There are so many "how-to" videos on Roots Television that it's impossible to list all of them. Go explore! There are 23 different Roots Television channels - mouse over the icons at the bottom of the home page screen to see all of them.
