Do you have a treasured photo of a Civil War ancestor? To mark next year’s sesquicentennial of the start of the War Between the States, we’re putting together a special Civil War 2011 commemorative calendar featuring Family Tree Magazine readers’ ancestors.
If you’d like your Civil War ancestor—male or female, adult or child—to be featured, just submit your photo to our Civil War ancestors’ Flickr pool.
Note that you must have a Flickr membership (free or paid) to upload photos or add comments. Click here to learn more about Flickr.
Please include in the caption any details you know about the photo and who’s in it, and tell us where you found it (for example, in your family’s collection, at a historical society, etc.).
You may submit as many times as you like. There’s no need to post your real name if you prefer not to, but to be credited if your photo is selected for the calendar, please provide your name and your city or town of residence. (The photo above shows Martin Dively, third-great grandfather of Andrea A. Walter.)
If you have questions or wish to submit a photo by other means, you may e-mail your question or submission to us. Please attach a high-resolution image (at least 300 dpi).
And for the fine print: By submitting photos and captions via Flickr or e-mail, you verify that no other party holds copyright to the image. You also grant F+W Media, Inc., permission to use your contribution in any and all print and electronic media.
