Weekly Genealogy Blogging Prompt

Check out Weekly Genealogy Blogging Prompt #9Attend a local genealogy presentation and talk about the experience. How was the speaker? How was the venue? How did the event help your personal research? Talk about the day, but use caution when discussing the subject matter in detail. The information presented belongs to the speaker(s). Posting part or all of the presentation would violate copyright.

Surname Saturday

If you are a Twitter user, follow us @geneabloggers and join us tomorrow for Surname Saturday.  Participants “tweet” about the surnames they are researching using the #surnames hashtag in each tweet.  You can then search for other surname entries over at Twitter Search.  Also consider joining the Genealogy Surnames group over at Twitter Groups.

  1. Thomas,

    I disagree with one of your statements – that “…the information presented belongs to the speaker.” The presentation itself (e.g., the Powerpoint) – yes. The handout or syllabus – yes. The information presented – not exactly.

    If I take notes about the content, or just remember what was said, and write about it in my own words, then that does not belong to the presenter. It’s my interpretation. It may be right or wrong, but it’s mine.

    Did you know that you can put copyrighted material in a presentation, as long as it’s not “published” – on paper or online. Good practice is to credit the author, of course!
