FREE Genealogy Webinar Recording: Who Were “Felix Richards’ Slaves”?: Identifying Enslaved People Photographed During the Civil War
FREE GENEALOGY WEBINAR RECORDING Who Were “Felix Richards’ Slaves”?: Identifying Enslaved People Photographed During the Civil War presented by Amy Bertsch, Friday 1 December 2023, 2pm EST / 1pm CST / 12pm MST/ 11am PST. Nine African Americans — two women and seven children — were posed amid a laundry day setting in a rare Civil War-era photograph. The handwritten caption identified them only as “Felix Richards Slaves” and the location as Volusia, near Alexandria, Va. Could their true identities be established? In this case study, historian and genealogist Amy Bertsch discusses a variety of sources, including probate records, a chancery suit, Civil War pension applications, and the former enslaver’s federal compensation claim, she used to identify the individuals in the photo, which is now at the National Museum of African American History and Culture. She explores how these records can yield new discoveries for family historians and she also demonstrates the importance of researching the enslaver’s family when conducting African American family research.

Free Genealogy Webinar Recording: Can You Write a Wrong? Copyright in Australia
FREE GENEALOGY WEBINAR RECORDING Can You Write a Wrong? Copyright in Australia presented by Cathie Sherwood, Tuesday 5 December 2023, 8pm EST / 7pm CST / 6pm MST/ 5pm PST. Knowing what we can freely use, without permission, in our family histories ensures that we are not infringing on the rights of others. For example, did you know that if you watch your grandmother make her secret pasta sauce, writing down the ingredients and methods she used, you have created your own ‘literary work’ which is now protected by copyright? (Just don’t tell Granny!) How then does copyright law apply to published and unpublished works? What is fair use and moral rights? Can a distant cousin use information in her family book that I have researched? This presentation will examine those aspects of Australia’s copyright law which apply to family historians and discusses ways we can comply with the law.
