For example, a video titled Helen Leary: How I Became a Genealogist is up and running on YouTube. In this video, this preeminent family historian, Helen Leary, CG (Emeritus), FASG, FNGS, tells about her journey from art history studies to a life in genealogy -- by way of cash register tape and suit boxes! Film by Kate Geis and Allen Moore.
New videos are regularly becoming available on the YouTube web-site and so do periodically check back. NGS will make announcements when there are new "members only" videos or videos available to the general public, regardless of which video platform.
Have you ever checked out Roots Television? If not, a great reason to is to see the NGS video Paths to Your Past which is now available there.
Also, the Leslie Anderson video, Connecting Youth to Family History, is showing on Roots Television. If you search further, you will find the NGS video titles The National Genealogical Society Home Study Course and Genealogy You Don't Have to Be a Celeb to Trace Your Roots.
These short videos are fun, informative and inspiring.
