Wasn't sure where to ask this question. I was attempting to access an 1850 Preble County Ohio census on family search and told there was a copyright restriction on it.
You may know or also inquire about copyright restrictions being owned by Sacremento California Family Search International. This makes no sense to me.
@Terry2491 I'm not sure where you heard that there is a copyright restriction on any US Census.
The Preble County, Ohio, census for 1850
While I agree that copyright on anything from 1850 is clearly an error, I don't see how that leads to thinking that FS owns any such copyright. All of the restrictions that they enforce on image viewing stem from laws or contracts, i.e., they're externally imposed, not FS's choice.
Are you certain that it said "copyright"? Could you have simply come up against the new index editor's should-be-fatal bug, which causes index edits to restrict the entry instead of changing it?
