Copyrite and Genealogy - Fair Use, Lists, and Originality
Recently, I recieved a request to delete or modify a post.  Here is my revised post. Ashamedly, I did not recieve permission to link to an article.  I was unable to contact the original author either through Twitter or her blog. I did NOT REPUBLSIH the article in its entirety as the author claimed.  I have included a snapshot of the article in the above mentioned post for illustrative differences, along with the date of today's revision. Fair Use is a slippery slope where copyrite is concerned.  However, facts and lists are NOT COPYRITEABLE.  I run the risk of offending both the original author and my readers, which is not my intent. If the author refernced in this post, Tamura Jones,  was offended, I am heartilly sorry. I hope that she and I can begin to understand copyrite issues and how copyrite pertains to lists.

"...In other words, you might be able to retype the list, but it would be imprudent to photocopy and publish the list since the layout itself might well be considered creative.."

Google search issues and Today's genealogy Google on webspaces
1,140 from for genealogy.

I have found over the past week that the numbers vary. The search varies from about 1, 190 to 1,140. Today it just so happens that the number of times Google has found the word "genealogy" in hit 1,140. It appears that webspace has peaked out in the past week and has not achieved over 1, 190 . I really don't beleive that the number of genealogy webspaces will increase past this number. As it turns out the Google search is not searching properly at the TOP of the page. If you scroll to the BOTTOM of the GOOGLE search page, you will be able to "Search within results". I have found previously that the BOTTOM search feature works, BUT NOT TODAY. It appears that the GOOGLE search is NOT working for "Search within results" exactly for It will search NOW whereas is was searching earlier.

NOTE: I traveled to the webspace directly and have found a BRAND SPANKING NEW FEATURE available. Google search of AND

:) :) :) Love It!

The only issue I with GOOGLE is that there is a "Search within these results" LINK instead of a radio button AND a search BUTTON.  This is extremely confusing.  Just utilizing the SEARCH BUTTON will yeild different results than clicking on the "Search within these results" LINK.  Why doesn't GOOGLE use something other than a LINK for this feature?  I know that GOOGLE strives to be different, but come on...... the search standard for "search within results" is a radio button.

WebRing Nav Checker - Having a bad day...
Many WebRing members are checking their inbox's and finding that the navigation checker on their WebRings have caught a few failed sites and automatically placed those sites into suspension.  This blog was one such site that was suspended while both the SSNB code and the HTML code was supposively in place.  After re-checking this site it STILL failed, but I re-instated it anyway.  Yesterday, when I became aware of the issue I navigated the blog fine with the navigation code that was automatically placed by WebRing.  Since the navigation checker indicated that this site FAILED with both the SSNB code and the HTML code in place it does appear that something is awry with WebRing's navigation checker.  It is a bit finicky of late and I would not take its word for a FAILED site as this site's navigation is fine.

Do you have a genealogy webspace?
If you are viewing a blank page like the one below, then you likely do not have an index page or index.html page. Your index page is the first page viewed when your profile link is clicked. Your index page usually appears above your shoutbox to the right of your profile. Here is an example of a blank webspace from peterwesternuk aka Maxmillan author of WebRing's 1st Genealogy Blog.

Here are a few helpful links to help you get started on's Webspace:
