Roots-Key is published four times per year by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles.



The preferred format for materials submitted for publication is e-mail attachment (plain unjustified text or word document). Other forms may also be sent, including paper copy (typed is preferred).

Material accepted for publication becomes subject to whatever revisions are necessary to meet space requirements and quality standards. Original articles, not previously published, once accepted, may not be published elsewhere simultaneously. After publication in Roots-Key, they may be published elsewhere with proper attribution. Articles remain the property of the authors. Items from other sources should be submitted with full attribution (name of publication and issue date is a minimum), so that reprint authorizations can be obtained where necessary.
