Bygone Life Journal is the online journal and companion to the BygoneLife websites. Whereas the primary focus of the websites is the presentation of history through its media, the magazine will provide more “story-telling” and articles designed to capture the “look and feel” of the past. We would like to encourage our readers to participate in the endeavor by contributing articles, stories, photographs or memories. If there appears to be an interest moving forward, we will consider adding a forum or some type of “sharing” feature to bring the people of the present together in their pursuit of the past. Questions, comments and other feedback are always welcome, of course. The magazine exists for the benefit of its readers, after all.
