Copyright Statement

Unless otherwise noted all data and images contained on this site and any of its pages are Copyright © Dan MacDonald.

This site and its contents are subject to the Canadian Copyright Act and Regulations.

American visitors should note that some significant differences exist between Canadian and US copyright regulations. Most notably, unlike US copyright laws, the Canadian legislation makes no distinction between a body of work as a whole and the information it contains. Thus, genealogical information such as vital statistics, census transcriptions, gravestone surveys, etc, that are contained within this site are subject to the same copyright as the site as a whole and/or any of the individual articles within.

You may conditionally (see below) link to this site and/or any of its pages but permission is required before reproducing any text or images, either in whole or in part. Questions concerning the use of this material may be directed to the site-owner via the Contact Information found elsewhere on this site.

The site-owner retains the right to add, remove, update, correct, or otherwise alter any and all of the data and images contained herein, at any time, and without either prior or subsequent notification to visitors or other interested or affected parties.

This site shall not be mirrored or otherwise duplicated, at any time, or in any form, by any individual or organization other than the site-owner.

Individuals or organizations linking to this site and/or any of its pages, data, or images shall ensure that the link is clearly identified as being a separate site. All portions of these pages shall appear in the link. Opening this site within a frame is not permitted. The full URL to this site shall be provided and shall be clearly visible to the user at all times.

Do not link directly to images. Instead, link to the page(s) upon which they appear.

Incorporating this site and/or any of its pages, data, images, or portions thereof into another site in such a manner as to appear to be an integral part of the other site and not wholly separate and distinct from it, is not permitted.

The data and images on this site are provided Free-of-Charge. Subscription and other fee-based sites and services are not permitted to link to or otherwise incorporate this site or portions thereof in such a manner, either intentional or unintentional, as to force, coerce, oblige, or otherwise require (or to appear to force, coerce, oblige, or otherwise require) visitors to their site(s) to pay a subscription and/or access fee in order to view these pages or anything contained therein.

It is not permitted for individuals or organizations to incorporate any of the data, images, or portions thereof contained within this site into any publication, in any form, printed or electronic (including internet sites), that is made available to the public or to certain portions of the public for a fee, regardless of the basis for the fee (ie: profit, non-profit, cost-recovery, or subscription).

Notwithstanding the prior statement exceptions may be granted, at the site-owner's sole discretion, to legitimate genealogical and historical groups provided they make their requests in writing and clearly identify themselves, the reasons behind the request, and the type and nature of the intended re-use of the material. Exceptions may also be granted to individuals under the same circumstances as above. In either case, where permission has been granted, any material used shall be properly referenced to this site and, where applicable, to the original source document.

This Copyright Statement shall be retroactive to include any and all data and images posted to or otherwise incorporated into this site since its inception in February 2002.
