Join us for the next episode of FGS Radio - My Society, an Internet radio show on Blog talk Radio presented by the Federation of Genealogical Societies.

This week’s episode hosted by Randy Whited is entitled Copyright and Your Genealogy Society. Still not sure what images or content you can use for genealogy society projects? What about indexing records and other genealogy-related material? Get some answers and some tips on copyright from FGS board member and noted genealogy blogger Thomas MacEntee. We’ll also discuss various copyright issues that confront genealogy societies including how to monitor and protect a society’s publications as well as online content. We will also be featuring FGS member society Honolulu County Genealogical Society in our weekly Society Spotlight feature.

Guest: Thomas MacEntee

When he’s not busy writing blog posts, organizing the 2500+ members of GeneaBloggers (http://www.geneabloggers.com), teaching online genealogy webinars and more, Thomas MacEntee is busy in his role as “genealogy ninja.” Stealth is not easy, but he manages to get the inside track on emerging technologies and vendors as they relate to the genealogy industry. After being laid off from a 25-year career in the tech industry in 2008, Thomas has been able to “repurpose” his skill set for the genealogy community and loves to see other genealogists succeed, whether it is with their own research or building their own careers in the field.
