With regard to items found on this web site ...

You are more than welcome to use anything you find on this web site in your personal genealogy research files. However, please cite your sources correctly when you do so. Many wonderful volunteers have spent a tremendous amount of time transcribing, typing and contributing data so that you can find it easily. Give them the credit that they deserve. If you find an obituary on these web pages for your great great grandfather that was published in a local newspaper, YOUR source is NOT the newspaper, but is the person who transcribed that obituary.

If you are using a photograph of your great great grandfather's tombstone in your genealogy files, please give credit to the photographer. If you publish your genealogy anywhere (in book form, a personal web site, etc.) you MUST obtain written permission from the photographer to use that photograph BEFORE you republish the picture with the appropriate credit. Photographs are automatically copyrighted by the photographer, according to law, by the mere fact that they are published. Copying them to other websites (or any other media) without permission is a violation of copyright law.

CENSUS VOLUNTEERS: There were several new census transcriptions added since the beginning of the year. The 1880 census for Cambria County is now completely transcribed!! See the recently added transcriptions for this at the bottom of this web page. April reports that several transcriptions are being worked on currently. More volunteers are needed to both transcribe and proofread this valuable genealogical resource. Contact April Phillips for additional information.

CEMETERY LISTINGS: Several minor (and some not-so-minor) updates to some cemetery listings. Thank you to all the contributors who send in corrections and additions!! The latest listings can be found on the Cemetery Index web page.
OTHER ADDITION(S): A big thanks to all the contributers who have sent in updates, corrections and other articles!!
