The Brigham Young University Family History Library regularly produces video training classes that are freely available online on YouTube.com. In addition, the BYU Family History Library also has a schedule of classes both during the week and on Sunday afternoons on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of selected months. The schedule for classes is regularly posted on the BYU Family History Library Facebook page. Due to the schedule of the university, there are months when there are no classes. For example, this month, May 2015, there are no Sunday classes, but there are classes during the day. The next round of classes will resume in June, 2015.
BYU is a huge university with an enrollment of over 29,000 students. Right now, BYU is undergoing extensive construction and physical facilities expansion. Parking on campus is at a premium and even getting to some of the available parking is a challenge. But we are continuing with the classes and will continue to put them online for free public viewing. The Sunday classes are not usually videoed and must be attended in person.
