Ms. Hudler,
   I am writing to obtain information on posting obituaries on the net. Must I obtain permission from your newspaper to post obits on my genealogy website of my family members who passed away over the years and whose obits were posted in the newspaper? And if so, do I get the permission from you or someone else ? Must I get permission for each individual obit or can I obtain permission for all the obits at once? I am looking forwards to hearing from you. Thank you very much.
