Looking For Photographs

Although my latest book, Slovak Pittsburgh, was just released on December 4th, I am already looking ahead to my next project, which just also happens to be for Arcadia Publishing, and I can use your help!

I am in search of photographs to be included in a forthcoming book I am working on: Sports Memories of Western Pennsylvania.

This book will be a bit of a departure for me from my usual genealogy-themed writings, but I look forward to the challenge! Plus, I am looking forward to working with a great co-author, Pittsburgh TV sports anchor, Alby Oxenreiter!

If you have any photographs you would like to share for this project, I would love to include them in the book. The publisher is unable to pay for images, but a full credit line will be given to the owner or copyright holder. Should you wish to send digital images they must be scanned at 300 d.p.i. and saved in TIFF (.tif) format.

If you prefer to submit hard copy images (clear, high quality photocopies), please contact me by e-mail me for further instructions.

All images should be submitted no later than January 15, 2007. Please provide the following information with the photographs:

Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
Date of the photograph (if known, or at least the time period, e.g. early 20 th century, late 18 th century, etc.
Who is in the photograph (if known) and the occasion or a brief description
Name of the copyright owner.

Due to space limitations, not all photographs submitted can be chosen or used. The publisher will be selecting all photographs to be included – the author assumes no responsibility for use or for loss or damage to any materials provided.

If your photograph is selected you will be notified prior to publication of the book(s).

Many thanks, in advance.
