Heritage Book Deadline February 1
The deadline for submission of articles for the book and purchase of the Henry County Heritage Book is February 1, 2010. The non-profit group has met publishing goals but the large number of still incoming submissions has led the committee to extend the deadline. The book has sold over 500 copies with over 400,000 words submitted. Stories from nearly every state including from as far away as Texas, California, and Florida have been submitted and even stories from France with a Henry County connection have come into the Bassett Historical Center. Pioneer Stories are 1,000 words and 2 photos free. (A Pioneer Family is one which was in Henry County before 1800). Family Stories are 500 words and 1 photo free. Community Stories are the editor’s discretion at 1,000 words and two photos. Military Stories are 100 words with a photo preferably in uniform. Church Histories are 250 words with one photo. (Churches over 100 years old get 500 words and two photos.) Topical Stories are 250 words and one photo. Articles can go over these guidelines at a cost of 10 cents a word and extra photos or enlargements are at $12.50. Send stories via email if possible to Tom Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos must be 300 dpi. Email submissions are accepted. All profits go to the building fund of the Bassett Historical Center. www.bassetthistoricalcenter.com.
