Pictures from Minnie Masters Ratliff #21--baby Minnie

On the back is written "Minnie was at that odd ... that...".  Rest is illegible.  This is probably Minnie Masters.

From the 1900 census for Llano County, Texas, we find a Minnie Masters in the following family, which we are guessing is the right family:
Masters, Martha, head, b. Feb 1847, 53, widowed
", Nancy B., daughter, b. Jan 1871,  29, single
", Jacob C., son, b. Oct 1874, 25, single
", Henry L., son, July 1878, 21, single
", Titus C., son, July 1881, 18, single
", Jackson B., son, Mar 1883, 17 single
", Rachel B., daughter, Nov 1884, 15, single
", Minnie L., daughter, Feb 1891, 9, single.
All were born in Texas.

November meeting of Kerrville Genealogical Society

The Kerrville Genealogical Society will meet Wednesday, November 18, 2015, at the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library meeting room.

Dale Gaudier will speak on “Copyrights, Fair Use Laws and Patents”. Dale Gaudier is a retired intellectual property attorney.  He earned his J.D. from the University of Georgia College of Law and practiced law for more than 30 years, most of that time working for an oilfield services company.  His topic is “Intellectual Property and the Genealogist: a match made in heaven, or your worst nightmare?”  While not a genealogist, he is married to one!  He will primarily discuss copyright and fair use, but will also touch on searching for patents your ancestors may have received. Questions he will consider include “What is fair use”? “What is a copyright and who owns it?”, "What is copyright infringement?”,  “Is that snapshot grandma took really under copyright?”, “How do I find out who owns the copyright anyhow?" and “How do I find out if my ancestor ever received a patent?"

The meeting is free and open to the public.
