Video is a great format to communicate knowledge and share tips and strategies. Last year, Devon began sharing videos on YouTube as an experiment. Since then, we’ve fallen in love with the platform and the people we are able to reach and teach.
The Family History Fanatics publishes videos every Tuesday and Thursday and the response is wonderful. Our community keeps growing and the questions shared in the comment feeds to keep us energized! Other YouTube channels have died out in the genealogy sphere, but there’s a need for all things family history, as our channel continues to prove.
Now, we don’t want to keep this format exclusive to Andy, Devon, and Caleb. Many genealogy educators want to reach a larger audience, but they don’t have the time and energy to develop a YouTube channel. That’s why Family History Fanatics has a collective name. We’re not just three Lees who like genealogy. We’re a group of people who want to transform online learning, promote products and services in the industry, and helping more people trace and preserve their family history. If you fit this description as well, we invite you to submit a video to our channel.
We have some guidelines on how to compile your video. The great thing is, we’ll do the editing for you! You just have to share your tips, reviews, or discoveries in 5-7 minutes and then add a few additional elements (described in the video below).
Consider making a video during the holiday breaks or in the new year. When you’re ready, visit the Submit a Video section on our website to complete the submission form.
We look forward to the tips and stories you share in 2018. With enough interest, we’ll expand our channel to post videos three days a week.
If you haven’t subscribed to the Family History Fanatics YouTube Channel, do that now. You don’t want to miss another episode. You also might want to plan a few hours to binge watch the 100+ videos we’ve released thus far. If we haven’t covered a topic you’re interested in, then submit a suggestion using this page.
