Welcome to GHS! The site has grown a little to nearly 17,000 members, but the same mission of educating and networking mineral owners and professionals continues today. Our areas of discussion have also expanded to include the Haynesville, Tuscaloosa, Brown Dense and Austin Chalk plays. In addition we also have many helpful regional / county / parish / themed groups.
So, the lay of the site is like this.
- Our General Forum (displayed on our homepage). This is the place you post if you have a general question or if you are not sure where to post.
- Additional Groups. Search these for the location or play that is the most specific to your question. For example, if have information, or a question, pertinent to Desoto Parish, then join and post in the Desoto Parish group.
- Blogs. Blogs are where you can post opinions or posts with further insights on a topic. Please do not post questions in the blog section.

Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.
Because our network has grown word-of-mouth, I want to encourage you to invite your friends and family by clicking here.
There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.

As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
