We cover the following subjects:
| Description of site
The Andrews Pages are designed, written for and published on
the internet by Ann and Andy Andrews, either together or individually.
Its contents are our visual and intellectual property.
- This is a privately owned non-commercial web site based on
our own creativity, research or transcripts. The site has taken
a great deal of time to produce over many years. Many contributors,
including ourselves, have gone to considerable expense to purchase
the documents and images that are shared on this site.
- All rights reserved. We operate under United Kingdom and
- From time to time we include material generously given to
us by other people. This is clearly identified as such and permission
has been sought before placing it on our web pages. The same
'Conditions of Use' apply to this additional material, as if
the contributor were ourselves, or either one of us. At the
bottom of each page is a statement attributing the copyright
of the page and recording the last update.
Also see below:
Our material and how it may and may not be
- All images have been prepared by and enhanced for the Internet,
the vast majority by the web mistress although some have been
prepared by individual collectors.
- Pages are checked in more than one web browser before they
are put on line. We have mainly been using Mozilla
Firefox and Windows
Internet Explorer but if there is something that doesn't
really work in your favourite browser, please get in touch and
we can include that browser in our checklist.
- The Andrews Pages includes links to both
internal and external web sites, using hyperlinks only. We link
to external sites purely on their merit and do not link to these
sites in return for services, cash or any other consideration
in kind. The sites we link to are mostly free to access, but
sometimes users may be asked to register or subscribe before
viewing the content.
| Understanding copyright
Everything on this web site is copyright whether this is stated specifically
- It extends to all the written material
within this site including transcripts of
content from old books, parish registers,
census material, old directories and any other lists that appear.
If a book is now out of print and / or out of copyright,
it does not mean that a transcript of it is out of copyright.
- If information is held in a database,
as some of our material is, it is also protected
by database right.
- The copyright of images - photographs, paintings,
drawings, etchings and engravings:
[this section added to in Oct 2016 to clarify
any misunderstandings about who owns the copyright of images
on the site]
- Whilst the original copyright of photographs may rest
with the photographer, the rights may have been sold on
or licensed to, say, a postcard publisher or business entity.
If that entity goes into liquidation their copyright may
revert back. That copyright may extend further back than
70 years from the present day. Publishers of all postcards
on this website, where known, are identified on every page
that contains an image. Names of the photographers, if
known, are also provided.
- Private owners of collections of postcards and other
images of whatever age, own the copyright of all scans
they make of images in their collections. On almost
all images within the website, there is a © symbol,
followed by the name of the private collection the image
is from. This has been done to protect and identify the
image. But whether or not the © symbol is present,
the scanned image is still copyright. This should be respected
by all visitors to this web site.
- The copyright of modern images from original plate glass
negatives belongs to the person who has produced
a photograph from the negative. The copyright of scans of
such images within this website belong to the collector who
has produced the scan. This almost exclusively applies to
the Vernon Lamb Archive.
- Dates of the copyright within this site are from the
last update of a particular page and not from when the
page was first created.
| Our material and how
it may and may not be used
A. Non commercial use
- Welcome use
but please contact Ann first (link at the bottom of the page):
- Those interested in family and / or local history are,
generally speaking, very welcome to use the material on our
pages. We hope it is informative,
interesting and useful. That is why we have taken the time
to put it on to the Internet, providing it for personal
use only. There is a note
on every page highlighting this, although the Vernon Lamb
Archive is slightly different in the way the copyright,
etc., is presented - © The Vernon Lamb Archive and
- If it any material is included in your private research
we ask that at least you record the URL and our name or names.
- Hyperlinks to individual pages from your own web site and
from social media are welcomed.
- Researching a school or student project that is not to
be published? You are, of course, very welcome to reference
this material, but please do not copy it willy nilly in large
chunks and always state your source - teachers and examiners
use the Internet too.
- Writing a newspaper article or a book or producing a T.V.
programme? Please respect our conditions but one requirement
is to publish details of our web site. There may be other
- Permission is almost always granted for use of images for
events such as weddings or other special occasions as they
are deemed to be personal.
- Unwelcome use.
Links are welcome, as already stated, but don't copy:
- Please do not copy material for your web site, web
space, blog or to a forum you belong to.
- Please do not copy material published on this site
and pass it onto another web site as your own work. It
isn't. This includes such sites as Ancestry.com and
its subsidiaries as well as ftp sites and other electronic
access. It also includes privately run web sites hosted by
- Do not link to individual images to make it
look as if they are part of your own web page. Hyperlinks
links to our web pages are welcomed, copying isn't.
- Use on social media, such as Facebook, is also not
Placing copyright material on social
media sites without permission devalues those sites. Good
Netiquette is to "share" the URL of a website, poor Netiquette
is take material, including images, and put it onto social
have used our material, please remove it as it not yours
to have put there to "share" (also see item 6 in
this section). You
may be asked for compensation by copyright holders.
- Direct quotes from our site without quotation marks
are not permitted. This is plagiarism.
- Photographs, postcards and other images
are provided to enhance The Andrews Pages and no other
web site. If we find
someone has copied our images and are using them on their
web site we will ask for their removal. Cropping,
enhancing or altering the individual images in any way is
not permitted as the copyright of the original remains. Again, you might
be asked for compensation.
- Copying onto CD Rom, DVD etc., even for personal use to
family members, is no longer permitted as it is deemed unnecessary
in the modern age. Just tell your friends or relatives to
look at this site for themselves.
- Our material may not be used in such
things as newsletters and brochures.
- You do not have permission to modify, distribute, reproduce,
publish, license, sell, create derivative works from, or
remove proprietary rights notices from any material on The
Andrews Pages web site without written permission.
B. Our material may not be used for commercial
- We do not normally asking for any form of payment, so
the conditions we place upon use are that no-one else should
be able to profit from it either. We feel very strongly that
work we have done should not be used for someone else's commercial
This covers all types of transmission - electronic, mechanical,
photocopying, recording or otherwise. Selling copies on a CD
ROM, on a floppy disk, on a microfiche, or making copies available
on a commercial World Wide Web site, or being printed or sold
in any form whatsoever is not permitted.
- Many blog sites contain adverts, so hyperlinks only permitted.
Social media sites these days are also highly commercial (see
unwelcome use above).
- Images may not be reproduced in family trees on other web
sites, such as Ancestry.com etc. - links only permitted.
C. Attributing the source and passing on information.
- Experienced researchers, of course, already know that it
is essential to always state the source of information.
If you are less experienced in these matters, perhaps just starting
out, we ask that you respect the same convention and clearly
state where you have found your data. "I didn't realise
I had to" or "I don't
know what that means" for
such things as copyright is not an excuse.
- For ordinary private and personal research purposes it is
sufficient to quote the URL and our name(s). If private research
is shared with your relatives, your information source needs
to be passed on, together with the conditions which apply.
- If you download material from our site for private use and
place it onto a CD, DVD, floppy disk, dongle/USB stick or print
it out please do not give it to others in
any format whatsoever. Please ensure that
anyone you show the material to is aware that it is subject to
- Sadly, there have been cases of material being returned
to the individual who prepared it in the first place - and
even being sold back to them by someone who has made a commercial
gain. The moral is that, while the Internet makes it
easy for people to download and pirate other people's
work, the Internet also makes the world smaller and it
has becoming easier for dishonest people to be found out.
- If you aren't careful in noting your source or
think it doesn't really matter, we'd ask you to just think
about it in reverse for a moment. How would you like to come
across something you know full well you wrote and had probably
spent a good deal of time researching, yet there is absolutely
nothing mentioned about your contribution?
in transcriptions - deliberate or otherwise
Whilst others may do so, we have not 'seeded' deliberate errors into
any of our transcriptions or other material. On the contrary, we have
gone to considerable trouble at all stages - recording, transcribing,
checking - to ensure our information is as accurate as possible. However,
some source materials are now very difficult to read and some errors
of interpretation or recording will occur from time to time. For this
reason the authors of these pages accept no liability for any information
that may be incorrect nor for any costs incurred.
