We feel bad that the article this week was so short, so we wanted to add another! Especially as we have some good news – but only if you can keep a secret! Shh!
Did you see the Family Resources Catalog that came with the October 2010 Ensign magazine?
On page 12 you will see that FamilySearch has just released a DVD called A Celebration of Family History which is material from the NGS conference which was held in SLC in the Spring of 2010. Besides including keynote speakers President Eyring, and David McCullough, it also includes some very nice video clips.
The DVD is available online at http://store.lds.org for US$4.50. item 09312000. Shipping is free.
If you just want to watch the video clips for free, including a tour of the Granite Mountain Record Vault which is not on the DVD, go to YouTube.com and search for FamilySearch which will take you to the FamilySearch YouTube Channel.
To download the clips do a Google search “download from YouTube” which will take you to lots of choices like the website KeepVid.com
Now for the secrets . . . actually they aren’t really secrets . . I just wanted you to read the article!
- There is a second DVD from the Conference which is not yet available in Canada called Coming of Age. This includes the NGS 2010 Conference Keynote Address, Coming of Age By FamilySearch president and CEO Jay L. Verkler, as well as a video tour of the Granite Mountain Records Vault. This is not yet available from the store.lds.org web site.
- I have heard – from a very reliable source! – that a copy of each of the 2 DVDs is being sent to each FH Centre!! Not sure when – so don’t call them or me about the date!
We just thought you needed to know so that no FH Centre orders a copy of either DVD.
Maybe I have as yet undiscovered Scottish ancestry. I just love the Clan McCloud video clip!
