Subject: Sharing Info: Pictures, too?
Date: Mon, 17 May 2004 10:56:09 -0700 (PDT)
Sadly, we (myself included) sometimes forget the purpose of putting our genealogy online. For those interested, the mission statement of the National Genealogical Society online at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/ explains very well the W's of genealogy, including WHY we share our information. It would seem to me that if we want to "share" our genealogy --and by puttimg it online, we indicate that we do-- and, IF we choose to include pictures, we should be willing to share them also, IF THEY ARE MEANINGFUL TO THE RESEARCH. NGS also explains the need to be respectful and give credit where credit is due, and cautions about using copyrighted material without permission.
I'm dangerously close to getting into lecture-mode. Sorry.
