A Sunday Walk around the Blogs

Judy G. Russell puts a fine point on copyright with Courtesy, ethics and law.

On Rootsmithing: Genealogy, Methodology, and Technology, Drew Smith discusses the fact that expertise is neither dead nor sequestered. The short of his argument is that copyright does not keep anyone from using published research and genealogy experts are not to blame because newcomers to the field can’t be bothered to use offline resources, including libraries.

Along similar lines, Michael John Neill, on RootDig, discusses the twin myths of the Genealogy Elite and the Genealogy Police.

The American Historical Society recently published a blog post, Big Changes in Store for the Future Management of Government Records discussing the impact of President Obama’s recent memorandum on managing government records.

I discovered an interesting new blog this weekend written by Kari Roueche, who recently graduated from East Tennessee State University with a Master degree in Liberal Studies/Archival Studies. The blog is called Archiventures and explores various aspects of history in the eastern Tennessee area.
