Some Ancestry.com and FamilySearch Videos

Here's a couple of videos to alert you about. The first is called, "Family History  - made simple" and is a product of StuffMadeSimple, an official FamilySearch affiliate.

Another is an Ancestry.com commercial posted by GenealogiaTV. Can you spot the names of several Ancestry.com spokespersons "hidden" in the pedigree?

  1. I would love to watch the videos, BUT, all I get are a couple of white blank screens.

    I keep thinking they will come up if I wait, but they don't.

    Want to try sending again????

  3. Dear C Burgoyne and C Burgoyne,

    Apparently, those named "C Burgoyne" who attempted to view the videos within 6 minutes of 10:00 pm Monday night are ineligible to see the videos. Number 1's suggestion to "try sending again" points to the common problem that few email clients will allow viewing active content. The security risk is simply too high. I forgot this time to send a link where one can view the videos online. Sorry about that.

    The solution is to view the videos at the Ancestry Insider website. However, to post your comments, you had to come to the website, which implies you still could not see the videos.

    If that is the case, try YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_cfGoOaXR8 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHsW9wu-20w . If YouTube doesn't work for you, then you'll need someone beyond me to assist.
