Tuesday’s Tip: 5-Minute Finds

466 ancestry five minute finds

Some of you may already know about the 5-Minute Find Series on Ancestry’s YouTube channel, but I just found out about it this past week.

One of the genealogy groups I belong to hosts a different class about once a month on a topic of the participants choosing (which is decided in advance of course). This past one was 5 minute finds and I was surprised at how much information you can get in just five minutes!

The 5-Minute Finds Series is hosted by Ancestry so it does have to do with Ancestry’s records. Most people have access to these records through either their own subscription or through their library but I realize it’s not everyone’s go-to source. I use Ancestry quite often so I found this series to be useful. Some items I had already figured out through classes, forums, blogs, doing it myself, etc. but I do believe there is probably something for everyone in this series!

Happy Tuesday everyone! 🙂
