The Journal welcomes the chance to publish news of births, printed at no cost, in the Saturday Relationship section. Announcements are generally received from the area hospitals, are stamped for date received and run according to date and space available. If your baby's birth hasn't been listed within three months of the birth, or if you didn't fill out paperwork at the hospital, you may submit your own. The names of aunts, uncles, godparents, pets, etc., will not be published. Phone number(s) of both parents must be included or announcement will not be published.
The Living staff retains the right to edit the announcement for length, style and clarity. PHOTOS ARE NOT ACCEPTED FOR CRIBSIDES.
