Want to add a link to my

All Pictures on all my web pages, are now Visibly Watermarked,
some are Semi Invisible, and most now have Secret Watermark,
And some have all 3 !
All my pages are now Right Click, (copy and paste), disabled.
If this unauthorized use of pictures from this site continues,
I will remove the whole thing,
as there is no point in keeping it online.
I ask everyone that enjoys free history sites,
to start policing these violations.
If we don't stop this, no one will donate pictures to me, or anyone,
and we all loose.
If you see one of my pictures on Facebook, etc.
tell them to remove it, if they don't in a reasonable time,
please email me the culprit,
and I will add them to my
Wall of Shame
I regret having to do this!
