Sometimes, it’s just nice to have something explained to you in your own language. The Genealogy Reporter presents the start of Genealogy Quick Tips in ASL for my friends in the Deaf community.
Many years ago, before my time as a genealogist, I was a certified interpreter for the Deaf. I spent most of my years as an interpreter for children between the ages of 3 and 14. I am a bit rusty now and needed a push to practice again. I decided to combine my love of ASL and genealogy and make a series of videos called Genealogy Quick Tips in ASL.
What to Expect
ASL stands for American Sign Language. I actually sign somewhere between American Sign Language and Signed Exact English, which is sometimes called Pidgin Sign Language. I hope to clean that up a bit and move more to the ASL. So bear with me as we work together…me getting back to ASL and you getting better at genealogy!
I hope you will share these videos on your social media feeds. Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter are just a few ways we can reach the many people these videos can benefit. Will you help me share them? Thank you, friends. And, thanks for continuing to be great supporters of The Genealogy Reporter!
Here’s the first of our Genealogy Quick Tips in ASL. We hope to publish at least one quick tip a week, if not more. You can subscribe to our YouTube Channel and be notified when a new video is added, if you wish.
