MRFHG Newsletter Guidelines

Submit Content

The Maple Ridge Family History Newsletter is a voice for family historians to share with each other their research questions, process, findings, and successes with readers. The newsletter is edited with the goal of sharing stories and providing a platform for contributors to practice reporting skills. The editing team is pleased to help contributors shape their work for publication. We encourage submissions of articles and images that:

  • Tell family stories in 300 to 400 word articles.
  • Stories should be inclusive and accessible.
  • Describe research methods.
  • Review print and online resources in 75-100 words.
  • Share news from the local and family history world.

Submissions are accepted at any time, and may be published in any issue. All articles submitted must be work based on your own ideas, and not copied from any other person, website, or book. If quoting from another source, appropriate citation is necessary. Suggested images should be from an author’s own collection, in the public domain, or with permission of the copyright holder.
