We’re looking for a great ancestral photo to feature on the cover of the January 2010 Family Tree Magazine (that’s our 10th anniversary issue!).
Maybe your family photo is the one.
Before you start flipping through those albums, please note these requirements:
- The image must be dated before 1920 and not show any individuals still living (we don’t want to upset any of your more-modest relatives).
- The image must be high-resolution (at least 300 dots per inch) so it will reproduce well in print.
- The image must show people (five or fewer is best, that way we’ll be able to see everyone).
- Include your e-mail address and/or phone number with your submission—we’ll need to be able to get a hold of you if your image is chosen.
Some disclaimers for you to be aware of: By submitting your photo, you affirm that you are the owner of the image and it is not subject to copyright by any other party. You also grant Family Tree Magazine permission to crop the digital image as necessary for publication, and to use the image in any and all print and electronic media.

Update: Please submit your photo(s) by September 15. Also, it’s fine to submit more than one image, but please try your hardest to choose up to your five favorites to send. Thanks!
