I hate to have to make such a long page about sending me email, but once you read through you'll hopefully understand why.
If you wish to send comments, go ahead and pass them along. I do try to respond to emails but please understand that sometimes I have a large volume of email to deal with and I can't always respond promptly.
If you have a typo or correction to send, please include the URL of the page where you found it. Even better, tell me approximately where on the page the error is if it is a lengthy page. If you have a correction on information, please send a reference if you can. I don't claim to have everything 100% correct! In fact, on the old chronology pages I accidentally had Thomas Wyatt Jr. being beheading twice -- quite a feat if it had been true.
Also, if you have a comment or correction on a page, please make sure it's on one of MY pages (i.e. anything with tudorhistory.org in the address). I have occasionally received comments (some of them not too nice) about pages that weren't even mine. Usually what happens is someone credited an image or excerpt of a text to me or my site and the emailer mistakenly thought the whole page was mine when in fact it wasn't.
One tip - to help keep your emails from ending in my spam folder, please use a descriptive subject line in your email. Messages with subjects like "hi" or no subject at all tend to have a greater chance of getting caught by the spam filter.
If you have questions, please read the rest of this page closely, since it will guide you to either the answer or the best way to submit a question.
If you have a question about me or the website, please check the the Frequently Asked Questions page. Chances are that it has already been answered there. Questions about, advertising, linking to the site, using photos, and copyright are addressed on this page.
If you have a question about the Tudors or Tudor history, you have a couple of options:
You can submit the question to the Tudor Question and Answer blog. Instructions for submitting are at the top left under the Tudor rose. You should also look through past questions to see if someone has already asked your question and if it's been answered.
Also, please see the Student Guide if you are looking for help on a paper or project. It may help get you started in the right direction.
There also is the TudorTalk email list that I started in 1998, as well as lists an forums run by other Tudor enthusiasts, where knowledgeable folks might be able to help you out.
If you are looking for links to other sites that might have information on the topic you are researching, please see the links section of this site. Yes, I know there are a lot of links there, but I've tried to categorize them in a helpful way.
Finally, due to the volume of email I receive, and the other demands on my time, I can't be an email pen pal to everyone who writes to me. I'm flattered that people would actually think I'm interesting enough to want to correspond with, but I really just don't have the time. I also don't use instant message or chat programs any more, since they also take up too much time. I've got a page where I've put together places that you can connect with others who share your interest.
Thanks for your understanding!
