We are always happy to receive articles of varying lengths. Please note that articles do not necessarily appear in the next issue of Ancestor as we sometimes try to 'group' like articles together. It is also possible that the article may not be considered suitable for the journal - the decision is with the Ancestor editorial team. Articles that are interesting to read and will assist other researchers are what we are seeking.
All items should be submitted in electronic format compatible with Word 2003™ or similar. These can be emailed or sent in electronic format to the Society. Documents can be scanned if that is required.
Although we endeavour to take care of all materials submitted for possible publication, we regret that we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to such material. It is advisable to send copies rather than original photographs or documents and to retain duplicates of articles. If scanning images please do so at 300 dpi.
Ideally articles should be 2-3 pages which is about 1400-2100 words, or 1100-1500 words with some pictures. If you have any further questions please email us.
