TikTok, TikTok: It’s Time for Genealogy!

Did you know that TikTok can be a great resource for learning more about genealogy? That’s right! The same place where you can watch fun, silly videos also provides excellent educational content. So, take time away from the cat videos and watch vintage footage or listen to family stories. You don’t even need a TikTok account to watch them!

Now, are you ready to explore and get lost in the world of TikTok? There are a lot of options for genealogy on TikTok. Individuals as well as major websites (e.g., Ancestry and MyHeritage) and magazines (e.g., Family Tree Magazine). Try out these suggestions to start. They will likely lead you to others!



Are you hooked? Perhaps it is time to start your own TikTok? Also, don’t forget about the library’s TikTok!

Not sure about TikTok? You can also find great videos on YouTube. These may be longer and may be recordings of live presentations, but many of the same individuals and organizations (like Cook Memorial Public Library District) have YouTube channels with various genealogy videos.
