Genealogy Channels on YouTube

It’s fairly well known that YouTube is a great website to visit if you are looking for information, in video format, on any given topic. Want to watch an episode of 1950s television? Need a video to properly demonstrate how to assemble an item you bought that came with directions written by a martian? Or maybe you’d just like to sit back and watch those cute animal/human interactions. YouTube provides hundreds, if not thousands of opportunities to watch videos on almost any topic imaginable.

Yes, there are many genealogy-themed lessons, too. A lot of the videos are one-offs or a short series by a single person, who then stops creating new episodes.

However, did you know that there are actually genealogy channels that regularly post new content?

Here are several that I enjoy and all are free to watch. They present a variety of topics, conversations, news, tips, how-tos and resources helpful to genealogists.

Family History Fanatics

Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems

The episodes are much less formal than webinars, but will still enhance your genealogy knowledge. The nice thing is that they are all pre-recorded so you can view at your leisure.

  1. Thank you for the shoutout, Linda. ❤️

    With few exceptions, DearMYRTLE’s webinars are live, not pre-recorded, but the recorded versions are available on YouTube, usually within a few days. 🤗

    Thank you for your care in noticing there is indeed genealogy content available on YouTube! 🤗
