Google's YouTube.com is a goto place for information and explanations about almost every possible subject. I have used YouTube videos for everything from installing an air filter in my car to learning specific software programs. What you may not realize is that there are thousands of videos about a multitude of genealogically related topics.
YouTube is divided up into "Channels." Anyone who wants to take the time can create their own channel and start uploading videos. Here is a link to a video with 2,265,295 views (as of the date of this post) about how to create a YouTube Channel.
You can search YouTube by clicking in the search field at the top of each YouTube page. You can see the search field marked by a magnifying glass icon in the image above of The Family History Guide YouTube Channel page. Very few genealogy-related YouTube Channel pages get millions of views. The most popular channels are sponsored by the large online genealogy database/family tree websites such as the following:
- Ancestry.com https://www.youtube.com/user/AncestryCom
- MyHeritage.com https://www.youtube.com/user/MyHeritageLtd
- Findmypast.com https://www.youtube.com/user/findmypast
- FamilySearch.org https://www.youtube.com/user/FamilySearch
