Content: Stories can be about any topic connected to the MidCoast region including people, places, buildings, or events. They can be funny, sad, quirky, informative, humble or ostentatious. But they have to be true.
Evidence: The stories on the website will preserve the region’s history for future generations. It is important to reference facts in your story so others can refer to them later. Some sources of evidence include newspaper articles, photographs, letters, birth/marriage/death certificates, or books. We can help you find these sources if you are not sure. Please provide any basic information to assist us.
Images: Stories come alive when they are coupled with related material such as photos, recipes, maps, poems, etc. Please include at least one image.
Permission: If you are not the owner of an image, then it is important to seek the owner’s permission before using the image and acknowledge the owner in the story. Photographs taken before 1955 are generally considered out of copyright such as images from newspapers.
