1, 5-10 year possibilities (Part K) - online video training

My friend Lisa Alzo queried Ol’ Myrt and a number of other genealogy writers for input about trends we see coming down the pike in the world of genealogy. She plans to work the feedback we provided into an article for Family Chronicle magazine. However, her request did not preclude the cross posting of my thoughts on the subject here in my blog over the next few days. I look forward to reading what my colleagues think the future holds for family historians when Lisa’s article goes to press.

In response to What do you foresee happening in the field in the next 5 to 10 years?, Ol’ Myrt replied:

Casting aside the old-fashioned DVD/CDs ( and VHS tapes (, producers of genealogy training videos will switch to online presentation often on a pay-to-view basis. Since most genealogists will have high-speed Internet access, the quality of the videos will improve over current You-Tube offerings.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
