Bio

I collect dead relatives.

I have been interested in genealogy for a number of years, inheriting my father's records upon his death 20+ years ago.

My primary interest is in the descendants of Daniel Dimond Jr. and Margaret Skelley of Cambria County, Pennsylvania. I am currently working on fifth cousins.

I am happy to transfer any memorials not closely related to me. If you are inquiring about a grave in Saint Bartholomew, most of my entries are not my relatives. I was part of a mass volunteer project to load them into Find a Grave. So if you want to manage an entry from there, just drop me a note!

Any photos I post that I have taken of graves or locations, please feel free to use. I release them into public domain. Many of the photos I post are from yearbooks from Ancestry.com, which as we all know, also owns Find a Grave. If I find a memorial without a photo, I usually post the yearbook photo. I feel that people are more than their grave marker, and deserve to have a face added to their name.

As for copyrights on photos, I am currently following these guidelines from several universities:

Date of Publication: Before 1928
Conditions: Any
Copyright Term: None. In the public domain due to copyright expiration.

Date of Publication: 1928 through 1963
Conditions: Published without a copyright notice.
Copyright Term: None. In the public domain due to failure to comply with required formalities.
Conditions: Published with notice but copyright was NOT renewed.
Copyright Term: None. In the public domain due to copyright expiration.
Conditions: Published with notice and the copyright WAS renewed.
Copyright Term: 95 years after publication date.

Date of Publication: 1964 through 1977
Conditions: Published without a copyright notice.
Copyright Term: None. In the public domain due to failure to comply with required formalities.
Conditions: Published with notice
Copyright Term: 95 years after publication date

Date of Publication: 1978 to 1 March 1989
Conditions: Published without notice, and WITHOUT subsequent registration within 5 years.
Copyright Term: None. In the public domain due to failure to comply with required formalities.
Conditions: Published without notice, but WITH subsequent registration within 5 years.
Copyright Terms: 70 years after the death of author. If a work of corporate authorship, 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation, whichever expires first.

Determining what is or isn't in the public domain is complicated, but these are the guidelines that I follow to the best of my understanding. If you don't agree, and wish for me to remove a yearbook or other type of photo, please send me a (polite) note and I will be happy to do so.

Obituaries I usually add with names, if they have been publicly published. In the case of minors (at the time I add the obituary), I remove their names. Again, if you disagree, please send me a (polite) request with names to be removed.

Happy ancestor hunting!
