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
Country and Ethnicity
Immigration, Emigration, Migration
Oral and Personal Histories
Genealogy Link Directory
Archives, Libraries, Museums and 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.
