Sharing Your Submissions

This is an electronic “Show and Tell” of sorts. The HWT Project will grow and be improved with your help.  Here is a quick “how- to”.

What do you have that we would all enjoy reading about, or seeing its picture?  – Please share with us these two types of submissions.

1. Family Registry Submissions

Tell us about your family’s history in Westmeath Township. Please use the Guidelines below.  It will be edited and uploaded to the Family Registry section alphabetically by surname.  Please give a date, era and a caption,  and any provenance, if possible, to early photos or documents.  Factual accuracy is important so please double-check your information before submitting.

2. General Interest Submissions

If you have an historic item of general interest, please tell us about it.  The item needs to have a connection to Historic Westmeath Township.  The item could be a photograph, an account of a happening, a memento or a  picture of an historic object no longer in use.  Please use the Guidelines below. Please give a date or era,  and any provenance, if possible,  to early photos or documents.  We are always looking for items with a Westmeath Township connection.

General Guidelines

These guidelines make sure that no original materials are sent in to the Project unless prior special arrangements have been made. We do not want to be responsible for the well-being of your special family heirlooms.

If you want to invite people to contact you for further details; supply your contact information within your document.


  • Original Photographs should be scanned and submitted in jpg or gif format.
  • Larger historic objects should be photographed using a digital camera. The jpg(s) and explanatory notes can then be submitted as separate files.
  • Newspaper articles can be scanned or digitally photographed and submitted in jpg or tif format,  or as pdf(s).
  • Reduce photo sizes if possible before sending.  Large sized pictures will be slow to send and receive.


Before sending a document, please double-check for spelling, grammar and accuracy.  We rely on you for historical accuracy so check your facts, please.

  • Emailing can be slowed down if the files attached are too numerous or too large in size. Please beware of those restrictions.
  • Final editing will be done to ensure the documents are in best form before being uploaded to this website.

Please send an email if you have further questions about how best to submit your article(s).

This Project’s email address is: hwtproject.k0j@gmail.com. The email address uses both the name of the project and the Postal Coding for Westmeath, Ontario.  Gayle McBride Stewart will get back to you ASAP.
