History Detective video excerpts

If you have access to high-speed internet, and would like some free (but valuable) video instruction (5-10 minute segments) then check out:

HISTORY DETECTIVE video excerpts

History Detective is a PBS television program. Season 4 has a particularly interesting segment called WEIGHING EVIDENCE where "Gwen walks us through how to conduct historical research and how to weigh evidence." (Dur: 8.10)

These videos require RealPlayer, easily downloaded. How about using these segments for a "short segment" at your upcoming genealogy society meeting?

Happy family tree climbing!
