      Hi James,

      Dave, as you will have noticed from post no.1 - from the moderator -
      the Latter Day Saints' Family History Centres can obtain, for those
      interested, certain records which they have put onto microfilms.
      These microfilms can be photocopied, though there seem to be
      limitations in some cases. Alternatively, as Alan Brigham mentioned
      in post no. 306, photos of the films can be taken with a digital
      camera. Alan mentioned that it was cheaper than paying 20p per
      photocopy - if you already possess such a camera or would, in any
      case, purchase one, and I fall into the latter category. However,
      Alan didn't mention if their are any minimum specifications to
      photograph these documents, which I'm sure are difficult to decipher
      already. So, Alan or anybody else, what type of digital camera might
      do the trick?

        limitations are: PERSONAL RESEARCH ONLY.
        Filming of LDS/GSU material for other than personal research contravenes the copyright held by GSU...there are three isussues at stake:  Owner right....that belongs to the curator of the original records:
          User right....(patrons to the Libraries and is limited to personal research), and then copyright of films belonging to the LDS/GSU.
        Transcriptions/filming of entire  resources are only allowed if an Agreement is reached by the owners and the copyright holders, and is done trhough the legal offices in Salt Lake.
