The Editor is always pleased to receive interesting articles for publication particularly those that have accompanying photographs or illustrations to bring them to life. The ideal article is about 1,500 to 2,000 words as this equates to approximately three pages of text but all articles are edited where this is necessary. Photos and illustrations should be sent as files to accompany the text rather than embedded in the text.
Also welcomed are family trees (typed in black, A4 with 1″ margins all round) letters, items, comments, and especially family photographs.
Please enclose an SAE for its return if sending an original photograph in the post. Scanned photographs (jpeg or png) can be sent by email but photocopies or printed copies do not reproduce well if they have to be scanned again.
There is a specific section within the journal for members seeking information or help with brick walls entitled ‘Searchers’. Over the years many members have been delighted to learn that something they thought unsolvable was actually recorded by other members in their research.
Please be aware that all material published in the Hampshire Family Historian is the copyright of the Society. Items can be submitted by e-mail or post for the attention of the Editor.
All submissions to the Editor (even those by email) should include a FULL postal address together with a telephone contact number plus email address if applicable. Your telephone number is useful in cases where the editor needs to contact you on an article related matter – it will NOT be published if you state this clearly. Full contact details are listed under ‘Contact Us’. Please state what details you want printed in the journal for people to contact you so that we comply with the GDPR.
