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.
