Free webinar to discuss copyright law and genealogists

Florida State Genealogical Society will present “Facts, Photos and Fair Use: Copyright Law for Genealogists” on Thursday, June 18 at 8 p.m.

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. Understanding what is and isn’t copyrighted and what genealogists can and can’t use is the key to staying out of trouble and to protecting our own work.

The presenter will be The Legal Genealogist, Judy G. Russell. Judy is a genealogist with a law degree. She writes, teaches and lectures on a wide variety of genealogical topics, ranging from using court records in family history to understanding DNA testing.
