Like to submit an article to Ancestor?

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 which 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or brought into the Society on a USB. Documents and images can be scanned if 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. They should not exceed 4 pages (3000 words) except in special circumstances.
