good point.  Some of them are really antiquated.  ...

There are approximately 1,000 of these and while many are of deceased family members there are also a good number of landscapes, cityscapes, etc.  So, a gallery could be an option.



No Marburg, a gallery should be THE option. I suggest you take some digital shots of every single one of them, to have some backup in case of loss . then make a slide show with something like Ppt.
Then hit the pavement to go to galleries, public libraries,etc...
Even your local , provincial or even national art grants society.

As a big fan of archives, I wouldn't even bother with microstock.
This collection deserves more than that. If you can even gather some
of the original equipment, ie. view camera, glass negs,etc...
this would make the exhibition even more interesting.
Research with someone who is knowledgeable of photo history,
and team up with a good speaker.
You got something good there. Aim higher. Good luck

This could become really tangled as I know each country has it's own laws.  So, how does all this work via internet where the website the photos may be uploaded to are in one country and the owner is in another?  And since the internet is worldwide....?lots and lots to think about. 

My guess (and it's only a guess) is that the country of origin is what matters.  If photos were taken in UK the laws described by Adeptris would prevail. And I think many countries follow the 70-year or similar rules (I think it's 75 here in Brazil, not quite sure). 

Therefore images taken in the 19th century would likely be treated as public domain.  I believe this is why you have so many poster stores/sites selling copies of famous paintings.  No descendant of Renoir can claim rights over his works.

Regards,
Adelaide

those copies are risky --

 the museum or other owner of the renoir COULD sue -- and they do -- posters in museum stores, books, etc are licensed from the owners.

re the deceased in images - they may not be a copyright issue, but the separtae issue of model releases still applies -- you'd have to have a release from the heirs.

Thanks.  Galleries sound like the way to go.

I don't remember which site it was, but two years ago I needed a model release for a photo of a deceased family member. 
It is not the heir that should sign the MR (fortunately, because quite often, there's more than one!), but the "next of kin", and one person signing is enough.  I can't find the MR example anymore on I-stock or whatever microstock site, but I still have the release I typed for my dead aunt.  It was accepted by every microstock site, so if you want a copy, just let me know.
Of course this only solves the problem for the dead people in the pictures, not the copyright problem for the artwork.
