Every one of our editors (Burk, Kristina God, and me) is a working parent and we aren’t compensated for editing. We are doing our best to maintain this publication, but it could take us some days to publish your story (if we accept it) and it may take more time (up to several weeks) to add you as a writer. Please have some patience and acknowledge we are doing this on a voluntary basis in our spare time.
Also, please refrain from editing your stories after submitting them (unless you are asked to by an editor.) We put your stories in a publishing schedule, so everyone has some top-of-the-feed time. When you edit the stories, they move back to the draft section and we have to re-schedule them. Please make sure your story is ready before submitting it.

Maybe you always wanted to see where your grandparents grew up and learn more about your family history.
