All Rights Reserved

From that date all further 7,000+ records have being signed over to the Methley Archive from its 254 contributory members, using a copyright form. This copyright is in use world wide. Our annual Calendar and the images from the Calendars from the year 2001 to present day are also protected in this way.

We are a none profit making organisation and all monies from the calendars and other projects we run are ploughed back into the running of the organisation, including replacing the computers and equipment we use and the free ancestry search we offer. The stationary and materials we use weekly plus usage charges and other running costs we might occur also comes from this income.

We also print glossy A4 photo’s of chosen images at £3 an image, or copies of documents and ancestry search records (printed on plain paper) for £1.50 per copy.

The images on this website are being collated for and on behalf of the people of Methley. The website is aimed at Methleyites and their families to enjoy whenever and where ever they may be in the world, especially if they cannot get to our regular Monday meeting at the Community Centre.

Under the confines of the law, all Methley Archive rights to proclaim and maintain Methley Archive copyright, or ownership of Methley Archive images is legally Methley Archive’s to reserve to pursue action against those that infringe upon Methley Archive rights.

All Methley Archive images are individually numbered alfa-numerically in order to protect every image we have in our database. These numbers never change; some are duplicated to show where they originally came from. Carful comparison shows many colours, contrast, etc differences due to how these images have being stored over the years. All images have a Production Date and a Collation Date also to protect Methley Archive Copyright.

The above copyright statement is to protect all Methley Historic Records for the future.
