Copies and Copyright
Viewers of this information are welcome to use it for their personal enjoyment and share it with their immediate family. I welcome the opportunity to share information with relatives and researchers.
However, the genealogical contents of this web site are copyrighted 1998 - 2017 by Mitch Blank and should not be passed in any form to third parties without written permission. This is done for some very practical reasons:
All non-public-domain photos appearing here are with the permission of the copyright owner. Photo credits are given on the page containing the larger version of each photo, which can be reached by clicking on the thumbnail version.
As far as I know, none of the pictures here that are lacking such a photo credit have any copyright restrictions.
Note that the copies of the images used here have been shrunk in size and
resolution to create smaller files that can be displayed at usable
speeds over the web. Although viewers are welcome to make copies of from
this web site of my own photos, and reuse them with credit given,
much better quality copies
are available from .
All of the maps here are in the public domain and/or are old enough for any copyright to have expired.
