To Protect your Identity

You will be assigned an Identification Passcode.   If you have published a story, you have it already.   To protect your identity, do not share your Identification Passcode. Your unique code serves to authenticate you as the story’s active Story~Teller and to confirm your permission for story and profile modifications which you initiate from time to time.

Assistance completing this form

Peek Into The Past offers a rich selection of features to tell your story. Whether researching genealogy or history, writing or editing story content, or simply completing this form, you may seek someone’s assistance. This form is designed with that in mind. It has a “Save and Continue Later” feature which allows for entries to be made for your later review and acceptance. To signify your acceptance, you may be required to provide us with your Identification Passcode. DO NOT SHARE THIS CODE WITH ANYONE even if utilizing others’ assistance. Those assisting could make entries on the form then, using the “Save and Complete Later” feature, send it to you for review and acceptance. At that time, you provide the required Identification Passcode.


This form has required (indicated by “*”) and optional components. Review the various components of a story, then gather your thoughts – what precisely is a Visitor to come away with?  Examples of stories showing a variety of component presentations are available for review and are referenced under the sub-menu Becoming a Story~Teller. If you would like assistance developing your story, here are several ways we can help.

Submit the form only after ALL details and files to build your story (required and optional) are gathered. Partial submissions with intentions to provide additional information in a second pre-publishing submission are discouraged.  That said, even with a complete initial submission, likely there are enhancements you would wish to make.  For the 30 days after the story draft is available, there is opportunity to preview and polish the story – free of charge. (Once published, Story~Tellers are encouraged to modify their story as further details of the subject become known; refer to the Terms of service.)
