If a book was printed in 1900, it is out of copyright. Whether it was reprinted or not has no bearing.

The internet is driving hundreds of local historical and genealogical societies into insolvency, and a few state ones as well. The sad part is nobody has really come up with any viable solutions to replace to lost income. With the closing of these societies comes the question of where their archives will end up. Maintaining archives is an expense, so often passing them along to another society isn't a workable solution since the other society can't afford the additional expense of maintanence. So what happens to the material and information? Does it end up on ebay, out of public hands? Does it end up in a local members garage or barn until the elements turn into compost?

Some of that may be the only survey conducted on long lost cemeteries.

How about just gifting the stuff to the SLC library? I'm sure they would archive it for you.

I did a compilation of all the information from a book that was published in 1926 without an index. My mother wanted me to sell it. I didn't think anyone would pay for it. I did think briefly of putting it on a CD, but I think that would be beyond me and probably not worth it. So if anyone wants the information, I'll give it to them for free.

What I mean is that if anyone wants to know what the author said about some ancestor, I will find it and tell them what it was. I don't have a cd but I do have a vc called Sketches... If you want to look at that

RosalieAnn, I agree. I had to unsubscribe, too. That was just awful. Reading the posts was making me anxious and I can't just keep taking zanax to be able to read those posts. lol

Is the Findagrave Facebook page "official" ??? Like are one of the Administers the creators of that page??? They are using a logo that like very much like FindAGrave's. I would think that if Mark or someone one had created the group on Facebook they would monitor it, at the very less put the rules of FindaGrave up as a disclaimer.

That's not hard to do. You might consider it shady, but it's easy to do.

This is the "official" Find A Grave Fan Page on Facebook. It is managed by Find A Grave and they seldom post anything.
There are no official Find A Grave "groups" on Facebook. They are all unofficial, started and run by fans (or not fans).

To find out who the admin(s) of a "group" are, click on the Members link at the top of the page. On the page that comes up, click on the drop-down arrow next to All Members and select Admins. Do you know those people?
