you may consider donating a pdf version of it to the Family History Center / FamilySearch
for more info send to:
Thanks so much. I will contact them there.
please let us know how it goes.
Thanks. I will let you know. I'll post it in this thread.
You could upload it as a Community Text to the Internet Archive.
Most files are uploaded as pdfs.
If you click through the links there is a video which explains how to do this.
You need to sign in, you can select your anything (within reason) as your sign in name, it doesn't need to be your real name.
You will need a title for your Book, and you should provide details in the field Description, which will enable others searching to find your file.
There is also a field Subject Tags. Provide information tags as this will aid others searching.
The advantage to donating it to the FHL is that it will then become part otf the FHL Catalog and be accessible via the system by the millions of FS users.
I have not received an answer from the first email I sent to [email protected]. I will give them some time to respond and then follow up with what my conversation is with them. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.
yeh - be patient - with the whole COVID thing - many things are turned upside down.
but the email is valid.
Yep. Also have a cousin in Italy wanting a copy of his grandmother's birth certificate from the 1890s. Born in Illinois, but, she went back to Italy married there and raised her family and wouldn't ya know it's available on Family Search BUT only in person at the FHC. So yep waiting to get back there. Lots of projects to keep me busy in the mean time. ;-) At least I'm never bored.
"books" have answered with information and instructions and I will go from there and let you know.
As far as I am aware you could upload to both sources, unless FamilySearch requires you to agree not to upload anywhere else. There would be no restriction by the Internet Archive.
The advantage of the Internet Archive is that information from there comes up in Google Search results, so the information in your file may be more widely available.
If Family Search posts your file in the FamilySearch Digital Library, I can only comment that in all my Google Searches for information, I do not think I have ever seen any search result which lists a book in the Family Search Digital Library.
There was post made recently (March 4, 2021) in this Questions Forum
The Internet Archive
a great resource for Genealogists
No, FamilySearch does not retain any limitations of use.
You can upload it to as many sites as you wish if you are the copyright holder.
But note - FamilySearch Catalog - is also searchable via Google.
here is just one sample search:
I thought you were talking about something at Family Search as well. That's kind of funny because I've looked at books at Internet Archive myself in the past. I'll check that out as well. Thanks.
Sorry I forgot to post that "Books" did send the instructions. Been very busy and will go over that more and the other suggestions (Internet Archive) for online posting of the report. In the meantime, one website accepted the Word report (Italian Parish Records: URL below) as is and posted it for me: Search by Region: Piemonte: Turin: Pertusio and you can find it there. In the future I will prepare the same information for Prascorsano, Torino, Piemonte for 1838 (first year of records in Italian. Prior to that Torinese records were in Latin except some in the 1700s/early 1800s in City of Torino were in French).
Also for those interested who view the report, Giuseppe Vallero and Marianna Pomatto were my great-great-great grandparents. And THEIR parents: Bernardo Vallero and Giovanna Falletti AND Lorenzo Pomatto and Maria Catterina Cerutto, were my fourth great-grandparents.
