Family Chronicle

We much prefer e-mail submissions - send a covering e-mail with the manuscript as an attachment and any illustrations as low-resolution images (if we accept we can ask for better resolution images later).

Family Chronicle is generally a "how-to" magazine. Our average article is 2,000 words but rarely they are up to 7,000 words.

Payment varies: however it is not less than US $55 per page and the average is considerably higher. Magazine for families searching their roots.
