Instructions on How to Submit Stories, Biographies, Photographs, etc to These Pages
Thank you for your interest in submitting information to my online museum. To send me your story you can either just type it up in an email like this in the format you wish it to be in (I will just copy and paste), or attach it as a Word or Text file (if something else best to just copy and paste it into a mail to avoid uncertainty of Word opening it). If the person sending it can't type/doesn't have computer or whatever, you can also mail it to me in written or tape form (audio or video) and I will have it transcribed and put on page (that takes a while - my secretaries being lazy). Ask for my mailing address in that case.
I do not have a format for submissions, send it however you want it to read. I would like to have the name of the person, and if you have it and care to share it, the locations of service (company, camp, unit, base, ship, whatever is appropriate) and the years or dates of service. Length is unimportant. If you have little, send little, if you have a lot feel free to share it all. Any details you wish to include and it needn't be limited to the service life (CCC or military or both). I am interested in CCC stories, service stories, and home front stories particularly, and any part of it, from enlisting to training through retirement and parts between. Documents should be either copies of the actual document or an exact transcription of same with description as to what the document is and to what it pertains. Photographs can be forwarded as well either in digital form or by mail, though copies are required rather than originals as I can not guarantee their return. In all cases I will place the email of the sender on the page(s) in question so visitors can contact you. If you wish a different contact address (email or snail) or wish no contact, please advise me when page is sent (and please update if it changes later).
Furthermore, I make no payments for any submissions, I am doing this to honor, record, teach and preserve our recent history for personal reasons and as a hobby. I do not anticipate making money on this. Note, however, that I may post appropriate advertisements in tasteful locations to defray costs if needed (twenty years in as of this edit, and so far it has not been needed).
Your submission will serve as permission to publish your story to the web and possibly to print. At the time of this edit, one such book has been self published. If you do not wish me to put your submission on the web or if you want me to place it on the web but do not want it used in print form you must state that in your email so I know. If you wish to retain a copyright interest in such information, that copyright information should be included with your post to the web (note I make no legal conclusions as to how effective such a posting is to retain that right - I have no idea). Also by submitting an item you are representing that the item is not subject to copyright other than one in your control and that you have every right to transfer to me the right to publish same to the web and in book form.
I Look forward to receiving your stories! Thanks - JJ
