    Default Using images of BMD certificates and Census returns

    Hello,

    I wonder if someone can advise;

    I am compiling my family history into a book. This book will only be given to other family members, the lcoal libraries and FHS's. The book will be free although a lot of my own money has been spent in compiling it I'm not bothered as its being done as a "labour of love" so to speak.

    I would like to use some of the scans of BMD certificates I have obtained from the GRO online in the book, also copies of some census returns.

    Are these copyrighted? Am I likely to get into deep doo-doo if I use the images?

    Also, I have a Pallots marriage entry image I found on A****** can I use this? PLus.....several Wills with the ancestors signature on it I would like to enlarge and use on their page. Can I do this?

    Other than the above, all the pics are either mine, or I have permission to use them and also quotes in books, I have the author's permission.

    I have been advised to get an ISBN number too even though it is only a very small print run (under 50)

    Fortunately, I can get my husband to print it off from PDF files as he works with printers!

    Any info greatly appreciated.
