Editorial Submissions

We welcome proposals for articles for Discover Your Ancestors Periodical and our annual bookazine and consider all ideas, although please bear in mind it might be some months before space is available to use an article we like. We prefer articles on the following lines:

  • Social history (eg particular era, occupation, lifestyle etc), with research pointers where possible
  • Family history guidance: how to make the most of particular types of records, especially unusual ones

In the first instance, please contact the editor with your proposal (not a full article). He will respond accordingly as soon as time permits.
