Okay to use images for personal history documents?

3 like 0 dislike

If I'm reading prior posts and the FAQ correctly, BG owns the copyright on all images and that it is okay for me to use them for my personal, not-for-profit research. I would imagine that I can not post the images on places like Ancestry.com, but can I include them in my own biographies of ancestors and share them with family? Of course, I'll give credit to BG and the photographer, including a link to BG. Thanks for clarifying.

Hi gramsearch,

Yes, from my reading of the FAQ and the Terms of Use https://billiongraves.com/terms-of-use/#/ 

that would be acceptable use of the images. If you're still concerned I would email support using the form at the bottom of the main BG pages.

Cheers Jim
