Monday, June 15, 2009 Update

I received the following from Barry Ewell about I had been wondering what was happening with the site. I am personally very excited and anxious to see it go live, and think it will be a fantastic resource. is almost ready for beta testing.

The planned launch of was set for May 2009. The launch of the website has been delayed for late summer. I have chosen to delay the launch so that the MyGenShare can team can:

· Take advantage of new technology that will greatly enhance the user experience.

· Expand available content for patron use.

Prior to the launch of MyGenShare, we will conduct beta testing to give the website a thorough review to make sure it is ready to serve the needs of genealogists. is a website where genealogists will find thousands of educational and mentoring resources for the beginner to the most passionate across hundreds of topics. Resources include a rich and growing selection of articles, tutorials, videos, podcasts, and slideshows.

Kindest regards,

Barry J. Ewell is coming soon

So do you have any idea what the details are for the site? I looked at the page and saw the links. They looked interesting but it doesn't say if it will be completely instructional or if there will be user input like a wiki.

I have no idea if it will have a wiki flavor to it. It definitely will have instructional articles, video, etc.
