“How they met” stories are great for a family history video. In Melissa Finlay’s YouTube video about Walter Corn and Billee Barton, she catches your ear with great music and the story of how golfing mothers started the ball rolling for their children’s courtship.
Look for another video by Melissa about a more distant Irish ancestor and his family’s growth along the coastline of Ireland on her Family Story Minute playlist on YouTube.
Melissa offers a link to her family genealogy websites and online family trees in the descriptions of the videos, making them great “cousin bait.” Thanks, Melissa, for letting me share your videos!
