The purpose of this web-site is to share information with others who are interested.

Except where the copyright to particular items is held by other persons or organisations, it is not intended to assert copyright over the contents of this web-site. It is intended that, except where otherwise noted, the contents of this website may be freely copied and reproduced. It is requested, but not required, that appropriate acknowledgment be given to www.familyorigins.net or other identified person or organisation as the source of the information.

Any person or organisation contributing images to this web-site retains copyright, if applicable. Contributions are welcome and will be acknowledged. It is understood that, under Australian law and subject to any contrary legal advice, copyright has expired on all photographs taken up to and including 31 December 1954 and therefore most images on this website will be in the "public domain" which means that there are no copyright restrictions on these items. Photographs taken on or after 1 January 1955 remain subject to copyright until the end of the year 70 years after the death of the photographer or other legal "author". Therefore copyright stands in relation to photographs taken in and since 1955 and such photographs may not be reproduced without permission of the copyright holder. For more information, see the website of Copyright Council of Australia and you may wish to refer, in particular, to the Council's document Duration of Copyright. Please note that other provisions may be applicable under the laws of other countries and material that is in the public domain in one country may remain under copyright in another country. Even if there is no requirement to obtain permission, it would be appreciated if appropriate acknowledgment be given to www.familyorigins.net and/or other identified person or organisation as the source of the photograph.

Images, other than photographs (for example newspaper clippings, maps, illustrations etc.) may be subject to different rules. Again, please refer to the above links to the Copyright Council of Australia for further information.

Some modern commercial images on this website are subject to copyright and may not be reproduced without permission of the copyright holder.

Please advise by e-mail if any copyrighted material has been used inappropriately or is not appropriately acknowledged.
