    SimoneTomodachi says:

    "Lisby is the most knowledgeable person I know on the subjects of antique photography, specifically Victorian era mourning and post mortem photos. She is very knowledgeable about tracing family roots using the internet as well as other historical sources. She is also extremely knowledgeable about the Tudor era as well as other eras of English history in particular. She is trustworthy to share your Flickr account with AND please respect her copyrights to these photos, especially antique ones, as she has a very extensive collection of both mourning photos and jewelry from the Victorian and other eras of history that used these items, especially hair jewelry. Some people in the past have abused her generous nature in sharing her accounts and have even posted these photos without giving her credit...worse...they posted them with inaccurate information, some of these people were paid for doing so by publications that should have known better and were previously respected by this woman. Please respect her wishes and ASK her before you use these photos (especially any from her personal collection) as well as remember to give her credit. Thank you!"
