Hi Richard, that makes two webinars I missed today. I was volunteering
during the first one and didn't get your email until too late tonight. Do
you know whether tonight's webinar can be watched later? It sounds like a
webinar that our Webster County Gen Society might be interested in.
Tonight's webinar was a real disappointment. It was solid information, but
way more basic than I expected. Something for newbies rather than the
"professionals" in the APG.
There is a handout available at
www.apgen.org/publications/Copyright_Law.pdf that has some good
resources, otherwise the webinar is only available to members.

From Dick Eastman's newsletter:
Judy Russell is a certified professional genealogist with a law
degree and also is a professor at a prestigious law school. That
makes her an ideal person to educate genealogists about copyright
issues in genealogy. Luckily, she is willing to do just that in a
free online "webinar" on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
Here is the announcement:
Materials and records created by others are the bread-and-butter of
genealogy. But whether copyright law allows use of old photographs,
reports and articles can be murky at best. Join "The Legal
Genealogist" Judy G. Russell as she sheds light on what's copyrighted
and what isn't, when and how copyrighted materials can be used, and
how to handle copyright issues with our own clients.

Welcome to the IAJONES mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.

1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
