1--Limit your story to less than 1,000 words.
2--You may write a story in your own words or quote it from another source such as a letter, a family story or an old newspaper article. But remember that some articles are copyrighted and you may have to get permission from the author or publisher if you include a lot of quoted text.
3--List your sources! Whether it comes from an old newspaper article or your Great Aunt May told it to you include this information. You can include as many sources as you know of.
4--Be kind. You can be factual without being too negative towards others, and never include possible slanderous statements about people still living!
