Copyright Notice

I include the following Copyright Notice in the "note" of the patriarchs in my genealogy files.

COPYRIGHT: This report, created from the RootsMagic genealogy file of Richard E. Henthorn, is copyrighted by the compiler.  This means you can't post a PDF report created by Mr. Henthorn on the Internet or sell any reports shared with you without his written permission.  Thank you for your consideration.

This doesn't mean I think I own the information in my genealogy files. Rather, it means that I own the format of the compiled information and wish to control how it is disseminated.

When reading one of my reports you may see more than one Copyright notice in the report. This happens because more than one patriarch is in the genealogy file.  This is particularly true in the case of Ahnentafel reports.

William Bonar Family of West Virginia

I'm adding information about the William Bonar family of West Virginia to my Yoho, Baker, Rine genealogy file.  The source of the information is a 96-page descendant chart shared by friend and researcher T. Vernon Anderson on the webpages of Linda (Cunningham) Fluharty.

I've discovered that some of the Bonar branches link to the Gorby family.  I've gathered information about this family for many years.  A Gorby register report, with name and place indices, produced by RootsMagic from my genealogy file, is over one thousand pages.

Richmond Edits

Today I completed the edits to the records of people with the Richmond surname in my Yoho, Baker, Rine file.  There still may be collateral surnames that require editing.  I can prepare an indexed Register Report of just over 500 pages for this West Virginia family.

I found a biographical sketch for William Henry Richmond on the webpages of Linda Fluharty and incorporated the sketch and the information it contains into my file.  Thanks Linda for sharing.
