Williamson County (TX) Genealogical Society

Member Forums Turned On!

The member forums have been turned on! Right now the only thread is a resource for carpooling to monthly meetings. This is a members-only resource where you can ask your general genealogical questions or specific Williamson County questions.

Did you miss the March Meeting?

If you did, you missed a great presentation by Matthew Booth. 
He not only explained and duscussed Copyright and Intellectual Property Law and Trademarks,  but gave us a look at his own family genealogy!

"Copyright and Intellectual Property Law 
       Fundamentals for Genealogists"
                         Presented by
             Attorney Matthew J. Booth

Matthew J. Booth is the founder of Matthew J Booth & Associates PLLC. Mr. Booth has practiced in the area of intellectual property for over 19 years.
Come join us as Attorney Matthew J. Booth will not only explain what is copyright-protected and just when the copyright occurs, but exactly what copyright infringement is; 
what is [and is not] in the Public Domain and what Fair Use entails.
