1940 US Census and RootsTech on YouTube

I have always been leery of YouTube, thinking it was domain of the weird and objectionable, it is, but it also has some fabulous genealogical content. If you watch the above 1940 U.S. Census video on YouTube, you should get a lot of links to other content, including some of the RootsTech 2012 presentations.

Here are some links to the RootsTech 2012 videos:
  • RootsTech Genealogy Conference 2012
  • At RootsTech 2012, Thomas Macentee, consultant and blogger, tells us why everyone should come to Rootstech.
  • Jay Verkler, former president of, talks about the future of family history at RootsTech 2012. He says the best way to predict the future is to invent it.
  • Julie Hill, from, talks about how they are bringing genealogy to the world.
  • Rootstech 2012 provides an in depth video about Cloud Computing and how it is used.
I think you get the idea. Do a search on YouTube for "RootsTech" and you will be able to see a great deal of the Conference content.

If you want even more videos, be sure and watch Lisa Louise Cooke's interviews on Genealogy Gems. Here is one video with Curt Witcher to get you started.
