Wednesday, April 15, 2009 - Coming in May 2009?

I visited Barry J. Ewell's web site today after reading Sharon Sergeant's post today on the APG mailing list. This site is planned to be about "Sharing Information to Join Generations." The site says:

"Whether you are a novice or a seasoned genealogist, will be your first choice for learning, sharing, contemplating, collaboration or simply enjoying genealogy.

"Find hundreds of knowledge-based articles, podcasts, and videos to help with your genealogy research on topics like ..."

There is a list of topics given, including Introduction to Genealogy, Genealogy Research, Editing and Production Tools, and Resources.

You can sign up to receive an email with news about and invites you to take a 5 to 7 minute survey concerning genealogy education and experience. I took the survey, and will receive (it was promised!) a free 150-page article titled "How to Effectively Work with Libraries and Historical Societies." Just what I need!

If you want to shape the content of and receive the free article, I encourage you to visit the web site, sign up for the email and take the survey. The site says that everything on MyGenShare will be 100% FREE.

I look forward to the launch of the web site and hope that Barry Ewell's effort will add value to the genealogy community.

If any of your readers would like to receive the the 150 page article on "How to Effectively with Libraries and Historical Socieities," I gladly share it with them. Simly have them send me an email at
