Chinook Call for Articles: Places of Origin
January’s issue should be delivered by the end of the month, so now is the time to collect the articles for the April 2010 issue so it will be on time. The deadline for receipt of articles or columns is February 1st. Here is an explanation of the topic to help you think of what you could write on this topic:
We had two issues on Immigration, so now it is time to explore the places from which the immigrants came. Here are some questions to show what to discuss in your articles:
· Where did your ancestors come from and what was that country or region like?
· What resources have you found useful in locating ancestors there?
· What sources have helped you understand the history/politics and its impact on their lives in particular eras?
The “places of origin” topic includes indigenous people – e.g. First Nations or Métis. This is also a great time for SIG articles featuring their place(s) of origin! Each coordinator, please ensure at least one submission for your group – it doesn’t have to be you, the coordinator, that submits an article. Tap into your group’s talent on this topic. The deadline for April 2010 submissions is February 1, 2010. Email: editor-chinook@...
