Lisa stops by Mike O'Laughlin's Irish Roots Cafe to ask the Irish research expert for some advice for listener Maria Romano about her Hickson and Carey ancestors from Clanmorris, County Kerry, Ireland. Mike has some great leads for Maria and anyone with Irish ancestors.
Then Lisa shares some advice from German Genealogist Baerbel Johnson of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City on German research in response to listener Teri Chaffin's question about her Matzdorff family.
"Copyright infringement and plagiarism is always a topic near and dear to every genealogist. A discussion on "fair use" typically results in a heated debate but to assume that since a library has a copy of a book and that an arrangement between the library, a company (Google) and various literary organizations permitting the digitalization of the library's collection automatically implies the granting of digital rights to that collection is flabbergasting.â Danny from Baltimore
