Arthur Young, Video

For me, genealogy research remains something For Fun that happens on nights when the interest hits me. Sometimes I pick a name and research for a day or a week. Other nights, like tonight, I go back to names that are familiar for me and just start Googling, to see if anything new has arrived to the world.

Tonight, in a random search of all my Great Uncles, YouTube, believe it or not, gives us a video of Art Young killing a moose with a bow.
It's old, it's a "Silent Film" with descriptive slides, and very loud classical music in the background. We're talking about Art Young, 1882-1935. The idea that a video of him in the flesh has survived, much less that someone put it on YouTube.. well, it is a fascinating world indeed.
