The above data which was taken from my Word Connect Rootsweb site contains stories which are written about some family members, which are copyrighted.On my site, there is a caveat which states this, and that part was not included in the placement on this site.
I am not concerned about the basic information such as names birth, death, marriage and any such data, as these for the most part come from sources available in the public domain.
Copyrighted material is that stylistic writing which is a personal way of expressing oneself in writing, the phrasing and general wording and the general way that the story unfolds, which is very identifiable with the writer. Copyright means that the work has been published in some way connected with my name, and those publications can be shown as original with the writer, should they be used by someone else within their own published histories.
I have received no requests for use of this material in this forum,and this does breach the Federal copyright laws relating to the use of my data by anyone for their own purposes, without written permission from me.
Very best regards,
John Fox Winston Salem, NC
