Bulletin, the Genealogical Forum of Oregon’s quarterly publication, is seeking stories, essays or research articles focused on the 1918 Spanish flu – one of the worst pandemics in history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 50 million to 100 million people around the world.
One hundred years later, the Bulletin is issuing a special open call to the public for contributions. A short piece of 300 words or a longer article, up to 5,000 words, can be submitted.
Who was lost, how did survivors describe the events, and how were families changed?
If you have a story to share, but aren't sure what the GFO is looking for, contact the Bulletin staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information and past issues of the Bulletin can be found at the GFO's website.
