The Journal is published quarterly and issued to all paid up Members in February, May, August and November each year. New Members joining later in the calendar year will receive back issues for the year of joining.

The Journal Editor, Peter Spencer, is always happy to consider articles by Members for publication, although the Editor reserves the right not to publish, and will advise the Submitter if this is the case and the reason for non-publication.

To assist the Editor in this, the following Submission Guidelines should be noted :

The Isle of Wight Family History Society takes no responsibility for articles submitted to the Journal, nor does it necessarily agree with opinions expressed. Authors are expected to have checked for factual accuracy and to have obtained the necessary permissions for lengthy quotations and the use of illustrations.
