Has anyone linked to Videos as a source?

Just courious.

But I was also thinking, what if we were to video a detailed explaination why a set of parents were wrong or some other such controversial situation that "everyone" always assumes and propgates and attach a link to a video explaination?

Hi Michael,

I've not done it so much as thought about it... when watching documentaries I often think of putting links on profiles that were mentioned.

Also there are many other videos about a wide range of topics that could add add depth to a profile with a provided link.
About your idea: if it was not transcribed, the explanation itself would remain unsearchable.  Don't know if that matters, just trying to collaborate :)

I have not linked as a source but have linked as additional material for a category.  There was a great video done about the Jahncke Shipyard.  As a it was a major employer in the area it has value for quite a few profiles.

See:   Category: Jahncke Shipyard, Madisonville, Louisiana

I have linked a couple of profiles to videos on the internet. This one comes to mind https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jessel-20 See the section Look, Listen & Watch

Although, I like the idea of creating videos for disputed information, some of us are camera shy, and creating videos is not a strong capability.
