Litigation Between Cyndi's List And MyGenShare Dismissed

The following is off the PRNewswire. I am so happy to hear this news. It just broke my heart when Cyndi Howells sued Barry Ewell and then Barry had to sue back to get his good name.  I hope all those that prejudged this case will respect the misunderstandings and move forward. Both Cyndi and Barry have much to offer the genealogy community and we are blessed by their efforts.
