I love to read and look through really old hymnals. So many of the songs sung 100 or more years ago are so good yet you never hear them anymore. I'd eventually like to get sound for some of these old hymns. However for now I hope the words are a blessing.
While looking through these old hymnals I'm trying to make sure everything is in public domain. I've seen two rules to go by for this and I'm not sure which is correct so I'm trying to following both. Occasionally I can find no info on author. If I inadvertently put something up that is still in copyright please let me know so I can take it down as soon as possible!!!! The 2 rules I'm trying to follow are: 1) Is any hymn written before 1922 is in public domain. 2) Take the year of death of the author of the hymn and add 70 years.
Again if I miss something that is still in copyright please let me know so I can take it down! Thanks! Some of these authors I can find no information whatsoever!
Hope you all find this site to be a blessing!
