I have written over 40 family histories using resources of the Genie Room. Regarding the Sigdal Eggedal Family and Farm Book, I translated the 1,208 pages. I did not ask for or receive money for the Danish and Swedish dictionaries, nor the 800 sheets of paper and two ink cartridges.
The Library Board must not be aware that I own the intellectual property rights, as does everyone who gave a family history to the Genie collection. I will not assign my rights over the the library to place my books into the public domain. I have information of still living people that I must protect.
I hope that someone will find information from the translation.
