editor's decision on suitability for publication is final.

As is normal for family history society
publications, no payment will be made for any contribution.

Articles should be submitted as email attachments.
Attached files should be saved in Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text Format (.rtf).

any responsibility for loss or damage to material submitted for
publication. Original documents or photographs must on no account be
sent, and nothing will be returned to contributors unless they also
