The Society’s Journal is one of the great benefits that a member receives on joining the LRFHS - it is part of an annual membership subscription. It is produced in A5 format with coloured covers and its 70 plus pages are usually illustrated throughout.
The Journal features articles by members of the Society and news from different county groups. There is a regular feature from the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester, and Rutland; along with Committee News and Views.
Members of the Society can also submit enquiries to the Journal’s Editors Mail Box section, which allows members to help each other when a research problem is encountered.
The Journal remains a firm favourite of all members as it features both small articles, a miscellany of gleanings from various documentary sources, as well as articles of a more scholarly nature.
Articles for inclusion in the Journal may be sent to the editor by conventional mail (see the address in the Journal) or by sending an E-mail. Microsoft Word .doc or .docx files are preferred, but .pdf files are acceptable. You may also send the article in a plain text E-mail. Please supply images in JPEG format at the best possible resolution. Authors must provide their name and LRFHS membership number.
Authors must ensure that any copyright limitations for either text or images must be adhered to, and any required copyright ownership clearly declared.
An article will only show the writer's name and Membership Number, unless the author specifically asks for inclusion of other details, such as a contact E-mail address. If a reply by post is required then a stamped/self-addressed envelope is required.
Anonymous materials and/or images cannot be considered.
