In the weekly (and free) e-News I receive from the New England Historic Genealogical Society this notice was included today:
Seeking Gold Rush Stories
For a California Gold Rush-themed issue, to be published later in 2009, the staff of New England Ancestors magazine would like to hear from those with ancestors who traveled from New England to participate in the Gold Rush. Please send a paragraph of information on your Gold Rush ancestor(s), outlining the details and briefly mentioning relevant family stories, documentation, or photographs concerning the Gold Rush, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some submitters will be asked to write accounts for publication in New England Ancestors magazine or NewEnglandAncestors.org.
