You may view, download, and print material from this site only for your personal, noncommercial use or, if you are a professional genealogist, for use by a current client.

You may not post material from this site on another web site or on a computer network without our permission. You may not transmit or distribute material from this site to others.

LINKING

For your convenience, FamilySearch Internet contains links to other genealogical web sites. These sites are not maintained or controlled by us, and we are not responsible for their content. Although we have made a good faith effort to link only to tasteful, appropriate sites, some may contain inappropriate or objectionable material. If you find such material while using FamilySearch Internet, please notify us immediately.

Because web pages are constantly changed and updated, it is impossible to list all genealogical web sites. We do not guarantee that your search results will be complete or accurate.

We believe that those who make information available on the Internet expect that it will be publicly and widely available. Therefore, we believe that linking to other sites is legally permissible and consistent with the expectations of those who use the Internet. However, if access to a particular site should be restricted, the site operator should promptly notify us.

If any provision of this agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable in whole or in part, the remaining provisions shall not be affected, unless we determine that the invalid or unenforceable provision is an essential term to the agreement, in which case we may at our sole discretion amend the agreement.
