Copyright Laws & The Legal Genealogist

Have questions about how copyright laws work?  We all do.  It’s not all that black and white since there are different laws – or rather variations of the law- in different countries and conflicting opinions on how those laws are interpreted.

To help simply it, Judy G. Russell tries to answer some of the more basic questions on her blog The Legal Genealogist .  Check out her latest post entitled Copyright and the Genealogy Report

Gioiosa Ionica Catasto Onciario

Gioiosa Ionica Catasto 1745 Coming Soon!

Gioiosa Catasto 1745

Gioiosa Ionica – Catasto Catasto Onciario 1745 is coming soon on Calabria Exchange.

 

We are currently in the process of extracting the 1745 Catasto Onciario for the Comune of Gioiosa.   At the present time it is almost 50% complete.  Images and extractions should be completely uploaded sometime in August.

Stay tuned for further  updates on this and many other exciting new projects.

Old vs New

By now most people have heard the news that Ancestry is going to retire the old search feature on their site. A “new and improved” feature is in the works to merge the functionality of both the Old Search and New Search into one consolidated search engine which has set a lot of people in ‘panic’ mode.

Unfortunately, change is unavoidable (and necessary) in today’s wonderful world of technology. This of course doesn’t help those who repel change and technology (myself included).

What can you do? Well Ancestry has set up a survey to solicit feedback from it’s viewers about what they like/don’t like. They will use the feedback to help with the design of the new feature which may not be all bad.

We’ll see….
