You might like to add the YouTube channel of the Guild of One-Name Studies to your list:

https://www.youtube.com/user/GuildOneNameStudies

We have lots of educational material freely available including recordings of talks from some of our seminars and conferences.
For the most part, I often just stumble across videos of interest embedded in a blog post or similar that I am reading. Once watching the video, I will see what other videos were created by the same source – basically, I check out the “channel” in which the video was found.

A donor-conceived individual identifies her father through DNA testing. She has written this open letter to him for Fathers' Day.
How amazing it feels to be able to think of you on this day. For the first time in my life, I know who you are. I know your name. I know what you look like.

I thought this was a very interesting article on the differences between genealogy in the US and the Netherlands. Much of this also applies to other European countries too.
On Facebook, Linda Roos asked me about the differences between genealogy in the Netherlands and the United States. That topic warrants a longer reply than I gave her on Facebook, so here we go! 1: Quality of sources In the Netherlands, we have an abundance of high-quality sources.
