The Crawford County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society (CCOGS) maintains a collection of databases, digitized books and manuscripts, indexes and finding aids to library collections, and family and local history submitted by our users. CCOGS also enters into contracts with certain database providers who supply web content that fits our mission. Regardless of whether or not the particular product is on the member or public side of the web site, CCOGS claims intellectual property of our own digital content including metadata. Nearly all our digital holdings are under
copyright or fall under an agreement with the provider. Unless a transfer of copyright appears in our library files, copyright is still with the creator of the work or the contracted service provider or content partner. All U.S. and International copyright laws should be respected. In this light, our digital material may be utilized for educational purposes and the personal use of the user to expand their genealogical knowledge. CCOGS holdings may not be “mined” by other entities, whether fee-based vendors or free providers. Any fair use of any CCOGS web site title should be referenced per standard citation with credit given to CCOGS as well as the creator of said work, if given. Beyond fair use under copyright law, users may send a written request to CCOGS to request permission to use text and/or images for a particular project. It is understood that permission may or may not be granted. CCOGS can only permit use of such items if CCOGS is the creator, owner, and/or copyright holder. Users may not sell, rent, or otherwise offer CCOGS digital content to others, without prior written consent from the Society. CCOGS reserves the
right to change web site content from time to time. While every effort will be made to ensure that the information contained within the website is accurate and up-to-date, CCOGS makes no warranty, representation or undertaking whether express or implied, nor does it assume any legal liability, whether direct or indirect, or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information.
