MyGenShare.com: Launching in May

MyGenShare.com is a new website that will launch in May 2009 headed by Barry J.Ewell.

The site - which claims it will be 100% free - indicates that regardless of skill level (novice to experienced), it plans to offer a "first choice for learning, sharing, contemplating, collaboration or simply enjoying genealogy."

Knowledge-based articles, podcasts and videos will be a big part of the site. Here are some topics:

Introduction to Genealogy
Family History Consultants
Genealogy for Families
Genealogy for Youth
Genealogy for Beginners

Editing and Production Tools
Computer Hardware, Software and Peripherals
Camera and Photo
Digitizing Audio, Documents and Film

Genealogy Research
Country and Ethnicity
Immigration, Emigration, Migration
Oral and Personal Histories
Pre-1800 Research
Record Resources
The Internet

Genealogy Link Directory
Reference Desk
Archives, Libraries, Museums and Societies
Travel Planning
Sign up to receive alerts, be invited to take a short survey and, as a benefit, choose to receive a free 150-page article, "How to Effectively Work with Libraries and Historical Societies."

All sites offering additional new genealogical resources (and utilizing new technology for education) sound good to me!

Learn more about Ewell here on his page at the Genealogical Speakers Guild. I also found two of his presentation outlines online:

- The Top 20 Lessons Genealogists Need To Know
- Effective Strategies for Researching Newspapers

Hear more here for an interview with Ewell on DearMYRTLE's Family History Expos Genealogy Podcast series.

I'm looking forward to the launch.
