Statement of Site Policy
What entitles you to access to the password protected part of this site?
This site contains the entire compilation of 50 years of the Sparks Quarterly Publication. The entire compilation consisting of almost 6000 pages is still available in paper form from Dr. Bidlack's family. The last price quoted for this was $360.00 but may have gone up by now.
The Quarterly, in its entirety can be found on this site with a search engine which makes it easy to quickly find any person whose name is in any issue of the Quarterly.
The cost of the entire compilation of Quarterlies in paper form would be $360.00 or more. We are asking for what we hope will be a one time donation of only Five dollars ($5.00) for access to this site and its search capabilities. This is a bargain in anyone's book.
By clicking the "Yes" button below,
you agree to donate a minimum of $5.00 for the purpose of keeping the site
on line, and of obtaining access to it. You acknowledge that it may become
necessary at some future time to again ask for donations to replenish the
site escrow account, but you are under no obligation to comply or to continue
your membership. You agree to hold blameless, the authors of this
web site in case of site shutdown for lack of funds.
The material on this site is available for research by members of
the Sparks Family and connecting lines. It may be downloaded solely
for the personal use of family genealogical researchers. The printed
issues of the Sparks Quarterly are available to the public and may be scanned
or otherwise copied for any legitimate genealogical use. However,
the scanned text and images on this site are the work product of Harold
E. Sparks and James J. Sparks and may not be downloaded for placement on
another website or sites without express permission in writing. All
legal rights to this project are reserved.
