Almost every photograph that I use here at Appealing Subjects and on my main blog, GeneaBlogie, is in the public domain. That means, simply put, that the photograph is not protected by copyright. A photograph can enter the public domain in a variety of ways. First, works of the United States Government are in the public domain. Second, a photograph's copyright may expire. Third, the photographer may have failed to observe certain formalities required by law at the time the work was published. I like finding and using public domain photographs to illustrate historical narratives.
