WAGS – Guidelines For Submitting Articles To WAGS Bulletin

Hello WAGS Members,

There’s a new link in our Member’s Only Section.  If you had ancestors in World War I, you might want to check it out.  Look for the ICRC Link.


We accept articles related to genealogy and history from both members and non­members, subject to space limitations and minor editing. We prefer articles limited to 6 pages or less.
Please submit a word document, saved in any word software format that can be opened by MS Word (doc, doxc, txt, pgs). Fonts used in the original will be converted to our fonts and styles, and paragraph indents will be standardized. Do not put in line breaks, except for starting new paragraphs. Also include a PDF of your article.
A limited number of pictures will be considered. Please identify the subject and the photographer for proper credit. Please send photos as separate files. If they are also embedded in the document it is not necessary to remove them, but please also send the separate files.
Please name the photos with clear identifications, and provide captions if you wish.
Provide a title or headline, and the writer’s name and address should appear below the title. If documents are not cited in the article, a list of sources would be appreciated.
Our publications are copyrighted, but the ownership remains with the submitter, so permission to use can be obtained from either, and the submitter is not limited to his/her use of it.
You may email your articles to the editor:
Betty Jane Hylton, bjhylton@comcast.net

We like to have articles from a number of people to give variety to our publications. Thank you for considering submitting yours.
