About the Site

All of the content on this site has come from the personal collection of the Webmaster, or has been kindly donated by the original authors or owners. Nothing has been borrowed from other Internet Sites without specific permission being granted by the site's owners or administrators - and credit given appropriately.

Over time many other sites and authors have swiped, purloined or flinched photos or content from this site without either specifically requesting permission, or crediting this site as a source. This is just wrong and indicates a lack of professionalism and maturity by the offending individuals. When asked, I have never refused permission to use any of the material displayed on the site.

I am happy to send images (without watermarks) to anyone requesting them for non-commercial purposes. It is gratifying to help individuals compiling family histories or historians publishing articles. Of course, no fees are necessary for such requests.
