Researching Your Whakapapa Online Video Series

Kia ora, 

Love the video!  Just wondering what are other topics in the series and when will they be released?

While I can get around google and family search easily some of those other sites listed in the advanced search I have either not seen or not used much and can not seem to get good results, so would love to know how to use them so I am hoping some videos will cover those sites 🙂

Kia ora, 
Here is the series so far.

Video Pt 1 – Important Tips for Searching the Forums and Records Released 3 September 2018

Upcoming videos with release dates
Video Pt 2 - How to do a Whakapapa Search on Google - Release Date 12 September 2018
Video Pt 3 - How to do a Surname Search on Google - Release Date 21 September 2018

We first release the video on our Whakapapa Club Youtube Channel at about 9am (and if you subscribe to the channel you will be notified as soon as it is released), then here on our site (that also has the transcript of the video)  about 11am as the video here comes from our Youtube channel then on our Whakapapa Club Facebook Page at about 6pm.

Upcoming videos currently working on
Currently being made is one or two for the FamilySearch site. 

Upcoming videos we are thinking about
From there we will do some videos from that advanced search list - are there any in particular that you are interested in?  If so, post here and we can schedule those to be done after the FamilySearch Videos as we have not really worked out an order yet.

The two sites I haven't used much as I can not get them filtered enough is Papers Past and DigitalNZ so would be interested in learning how to search those 🙂

As you say on the advanced search page, Varcoe's sometimes has names around the wrong way so a video for that would also be great

Kia ora for that. We will do videos for the sites you have named and those videos will be done after the following

Upcoming videos with release dates
Video Pt 4 - Basic Seach Tips for the FamilySearch Site - Release Date 1 October 2018
Video Pt 5 - Tracing Back on the FamilySearch Site - Release Date 10 October 2018
Video Pt 6 - Other Searches in the FamilySearch Site - Release Date 19 October 2018

We can not give release dates yet for the sites you have named because things change.  When we first thought about the FamilySearch videos we thought there would be 1 or 2, but when planning out what we wanted to cover we realised we should split them into 3 as we do not want long videos, but nice short and to the point videos which help people.  Each video is a progression of the previous ones so it also gives those who are new to researching whakapapa online a chance to try what the video talks about and get used to it, before getting more information to try.  We do not want new searchers to get information overload!
