Kathy Szczesny's curator insight, June 25, 2013 7:38 PM

In short, you can get sued, and you don’t have a defense. If Pinterest gets sued, it does.

 

So does that mean you should stop using Pinterest? No. It means you need to be careful and stop and think about what it is you’re pinning.

Some things out on the Internet are fair game; others are not. Things that likely won’t get you into trouble include:

     • things that are in the public domain;9

     • things that are covered by a Creative Commons license as long as you stay within the precise terms of the license;10 and

     • anything where you have permission to copy it — and that should include anything that has a “Pin this!” button or link on the site where you originally saw it.

 

And when it doubt? Ask. You absolutely can never go wrong asking for permission.

7 Genealogy - Technology Links

7 Genealogy - Technology Links | Genealogy Research Helps | Scoop.it

Here are this week's 7 Gen-Tech Links to help you out with your research efforts. Why just 7? Because as a researcher, you'd like to actually do some research, right? [Novel idea, eh?]

Author of 4yourfamilystory.com has decided to bring you just 7 links to tech tools once a week [plus the 3 bonus Gen-Tech links in the Genea-Tech Newsletter]. By cutting the links down, you'll be getting a more meaningful and curated list [And might I add that this is a hand-curated list just for family history researchers?] of some really helpful tools that you can review, select, and put to use over the weekend or whenever the next scheduled research time that you have is.

Because success in researching is not really about finding tech tools. Trust me, there's lots of them. It's about finding the best ones for you and your research style. And then putting them to good use to find those ancestors and their stories.

Finding the genealogy community on Google+

Finding the genealogy community on Google+ | Genealogy Research Helps | Scoop.it

Do we really need one more place to see genealogists? Aren’t blogs, Facebook and Twitter enough? Apparently not. If you want to get started in joining the Google+ genealogical community, simply create a Circle for that type of contact. There is a blank Circle on the Circle list and all you have to do is drag and drop someone from your list of contacts into the blank Circle and give the Circle a name.

 

One interesting and sometimes useful function of Google+is the ability to conduct “Hangouts” where up to 10 people can participate in an online video chat at the same time. Mobile Hangouts currently supports Android 2.3+ devices with front-facing cameras. The Hangout function is developing rapidly into a way to create instant webcasts and, in the future, share documents, videos, and computer screens with the others on Google+.
