Excellent Online Tour of NARA: Finding Genealogical Resources on archives.gov

If you haven’t been watching the new educational series hosted by NARA (National Archives and Record Administration) on YouTube, you are missing out on some great learning – and it’s free.

This morning’s presentation was Finding Genealogical Resources on archives.gov, which, of course, is the NARA website.

The talk is about an hour and 15 minutes long and is well worth the time spent.

Even though I use NARA often, I learned all kinds of new tips, tricks, ways to search and about localized records at regional NARAs which can be accessed online.

The video can be watched on YouTube right now. There was so much information presented that everyone, from beginners to more experienced researchers, will learn something new.

In fact, I plan to watch it a second time and I rarely do that with online talks!
