National Archives (NARA) Puts More Popular Records Workshops Online



The National Archives has launched new online videos of its most popular genealogy “how to” workshops. These videos cover “hot topics” in genealogical research such as Civil War records, online resources and databases, and more. These 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. For the first time, researchers and staff voted for their favorite topics—and the National Archives listened.

Some recent additions include:
  • Access to Archival Databases (AAD) for Genealogists 
  • Documenting Death in the Civil War
  • Let No Man Put Asunder: Freedmen’s Bureau Marriage Records 
  • Army Service in the Civil War: An Overview 
  • Exodus to Kansas: The 1880 Senate Investigation of the Beginnings of the African American Migration from the South 
  • National Archives Records on Ancestry.com
