Society members are encouraged to submit articles for consideration of publication. Articles for publication must be written by a member, or by a non-member who is recognized by the Journal Committee as an expert in their field or who is a member of another genealogical group, unless the journal committee approves otherwise. Articles should pertain to one or more of the Filles du roi or soldats du Carignan Salières Regiment, be relevant to life in seventeenth-century Quebec, or address the process of researching these French-Canadian pioneers. Articles concerning a member's travel to research or pursue their French-Canadian heritage are welcome. Articles relating to the descendants of the Filles du roi and Carignan soldiers and/or pertaining to French-Canadian culture and history found by the editors to be relevant to the Society’s mission are welcomed. Pedigree and lineage records, consisting solely of dates of birth, marriage and death will not be accepted.
Articles must be the author’s work, unless otherwise noted, and must respect copyright law. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of any submitted material. The sources of information must be included. Both “Sources” and “Bibliography” can be used. Sources are those research resources that were used for a particular fact in the article and should be noted in parentheses after the fact. A Bibliography is a list of resources for additional information on the topic. Footnotes are not required.
The author of the submitted article owns the copyright of their work, but the Society requests that, if it is later published elsewhere, it includes the phrase “first published in Sent by the King.” The Journal will also publish articles that have first appeared in another publication with the permission of the author and/or copyright holder. If an individual offers someone else's article or photo, we can publish it if we are provided written permission to do so from the original author or photographer or if it is determined to be in the public domain.
The journal is published twice a year. The deadline for the submission of articles for the Spring issue is January 15 and for the Fall issue is July 15. Submission of an article by the deadline date does not guarantee placement in the next published issue. We encourage submission of proposed articles as early as possible. Electronic submissions in Microsoft Word should be in Times New Roman font and in font size 12. Please submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Journal Committee reserves the right to edit submitted material for punctuation, spelling, grammar, appropriateness, style, and obvious error, and to shorten articles or publish them in two parts. If significant editing is required, the committee will return the article for reorganization, rewriting, or other changes, as appropriate.
