Online Doesn't Mean Free: Copyright Issues for Genealogy, presented by Janice M. Sellers

Online information is so easily accessible that people are accustomed to copying and pasting just about everything. In addition, one can hear a modern-day genealogist argue that no one can copyright “her family” and then that no one else has the right to post or print information on her family because she did all the research. This presentation will help you decipher the truth of copyright and also explore the ethical issues that surround family research.

Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist specializing in black, Jewish, dual citizenship, and newspaper research. She edits three genealogy publications and serves on the board of San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society. She is also a member of Association of Professional Genealogists, Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy, Genealogical Speakers Guild, and California Genealogical Society. Her Web site is http://www.ancestraldiscoveries.com/.

This event is free, and everyone interested is welcome to attend.
