    My cousin is doing a family tree for my fathers side of the family. He has put in alot of time on it and has gotten along ways on it.
    Today, I received 2 DVD's or CD's whatever they are called that has documents and photos of stuff on the family tree that he has found. My question is, since they look like he burned them himself, is it possible for me to make copies of them to give to my kids? And if so, can I take them like to computer store to copy for me or Walmart?

    Ask him before copying. My relative charged a nominal fee only to help pay for some of the databases or documents he needed to continue.

    Did your cousin actually bother to copywrite it? Otherwise, you don't need permission.

    All you need to do is ask your cousin to burn a couple of copies for you if you send him the CDs and pay postage. He's just going to insert your CD and transfer the info from his computer to your CD, no big deal. Be sure to get the kind of CD he uses, though.

    I'm betting he'd be happy to do so. :-)

    You should be able to do it in your own computer. Most computer now a days have capabilities to burn a CD.

    Genealogy is not an inexpensive hobby. There are charges for getting documents, charges for copying, making pictures, travel to different libraries/archives. I'm working on my DH's family tree and my SIL has said several times that she wants all the information when I'm done. I think she should at least offer to reimburse some of the charges.
