Purchasing old newspapers on microfilm is expensive and abstracting them is very tedious and time consuming. Therefore I ask that you respect my hard work and do not copy or make any use of these abstracts - except for the information that relates to your own family. I am making this information available to you for free, in turn I ask that
You Please Respect My Work on Your Behalf
If I find that my work is being stolen and placed on e-mail lists, other web sites, etc. etc. Then I shall stop making them available for free.
If you find them somewhere other than here please let me know. Thanks[an error occurred while processing this directive]
