While researching my family tree I obtained a copy of a thesis by Agatha Elizabeth Schoeman entitled "Coenraad De Buys - The First Transvaler" The book was published in 1938. I scanned the document and, using OCR software, converted it to a searchable PDF document. (I did this so that I could search the document for people's names and place names).
I would like to offer this "digital reproduction" of the book to Ancestry24.com who would like to put it in their free downloadable portion of their website. The problem is, however, I'm not sure who holds the copyright on the book (Agatha passed away around 1989) and I would like to get permission to distribute the document.
