RootsTube: The YouTube for Genealogists!

Uploading video of your life (vlogging) . . . that’s pretty much what 21st Century communication has come to. However, for those of us who like to wander through previous centuries, Roots Television has given us RootsTube. The site’s description says:

“Have some remarkable family reunion footage? Or a great research tip you just have to share? Think you could be the next Heir Jordan? Submit your own videos to Roots Tube, and you may just be the next big thing to hit Roots Television.
You can upload your videos right here through the Roots Tube channel. We prefer submissions that are:

  • 30 seconds to 5minutes in length (although longer ones may be considered)
  • in the following formats: 3GP, AVI, DV, H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4, QuickTime (MOV), Windows Media Video (WMV)
  • less than 100MB insize
  • without profanity orotherwise objectionable material.
  • cleared for copyright. In other words, you are responsible for ensuring that you have permission from the content owner to use any music, video, or images in your submission.

Not quite ready to go online? You can also snail mail us your videos. Just send a non-returnable MiniDV sample video to:

Roots Television, LLC
Wells Fargo Center
86 N. University Ave., Suite 400
Provo, UT 84601″


Wander through the uploads so far. MUCH more entertaining than watching teenagers beat each other….
