NARA now live streaming "Know Your Records" lectures on YouTube & they are FREE



NARA continues to make resources available to you in the comfort of your home!

Starting tomorrow, NARA (in DC) will be live-streaming selected Know Your Records lectures on their YouTube channel.  The NARA experts will talk about its holdings, from ship's logs to civil rights court cases to frakturs, to help you get started and go deeper in your research in the National Archives.

For all February programs, go to
http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/events/february.html.  For each of the programs designed with William G. McGowan Theater & YouTube, click on the provided YouTube link and that will give you access, when the time comes, to the live stream for that program.

The upcoming planned “Know Your Records” programs which will be simulcast on YouTube are:
+ Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad (February 3)
+ Forum on the Rosenberg Case (February 5)

I can’t wait to see what is offered in March!
