In journalism, the Five Ws (also known as the Five Ws (and one H) or simply the Six Ws) is a concept in news style, research, and in police investigations that most people consider to be fundamental. It is a formula for getting the "full" story on something. The maxim of the Five Ws (and one H) is that in order for a report to be considered complete it must answer a checklist of six questions, each of which comprises an interrogative word:
The principle underlying the maxim is that each question should elicit a factual answer — facts that it is necessary to include for a report to be considered complete. Importantly, none of these questions can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no".
In the context of the "news style" for newspaper reporting, the Five Ws are types of facts that should be contained in the "lead" (sometimes spelled lede to avoid confusion with the typographical term "leading" or similarly spelled words), or first two or three paragraphs of the story, after which more expository writing is allowed.

Hello. I grew up in this Boston suburb, where I attended this school and in this Florida West Coast county, where I graduated from this high school. I now live on the Florida East Coast. I have also lived in western New York, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Vermont. My American ancestors settled in the colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania and in Ohio before statehood. One of them was a militia captain in this locality in the American Revolution. I hold dual citizenship in the United States and Ireland. My graduate school nickname was the same as the name of this town. My family name is the same as the name of this place. My childhood summers were spent at Gurnet Point, Massachusetts, Otter River State Forest in Baldwinville, Massachusetts and/or Camp Sangamon in Pittsford, Vermont.

My Ohio connection
Through my mother, I'm a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright, III, and his wife, Elizabeth (Geiger) Weybright, from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, via Brothersvalley Township, Pennsylvania, who settled near Dayton sometime before statehood in 1803. The former Madison Township, Montgomery County, Ohio, was organized in their living room. Their grandson Samuel settled in Beamsville in Darke County. Except for my mother who was born in nearby Miami County, everyone between Samuel and me was born in Darke County. Samuel and his wife had many children who married into other Darke County families, so I'm related in some way to many people in Darke County and southwestern Ohio. One of the families they married into in my direct line was from Wayne County via Holmes County. My mother's father was an M.D. who had graduated from what is now Ohio State University College of Medicine. She went to grade school in Ludlow Falls, Cincinnati and Glencoe. For high school she was a boarding student at Muskingum Academy on the campus of Muskingum College in New Concord. She went to college at Ohio State. Her brother and one of his daughters and her son all went to Ohio University, while his other daughter went to Kent State University. Some cousins from Greenville went to Ohio Northern University. One of my brothers was born in Glencoe. Bloomingville is the only place in Ohio where I've ever lived. My father was working for Huffman Manufacturing Company (now Huffy) in Dayton at the time and came up on the weekends.
I received an A.B. from Duke University with a major in History although I had more courses in English than in History. I was all ready to go to the now-defunct theological school at St. Lawrence University, but decided instead at the last minute to do graduate work at the University of South Carolina, where I studied History in Currell College*, lived in Pinckney College and belonged to the Clariosophic Society. I have a J.D. from the University of Florida, where I lived in Buckman Hall* and took classes in Bryan Hall**.

Much later I received another degree from Thomas Edison State College. I have completed the EFM program of the School of Theology of the University of the South. Other places I have taken courses are the University of Miami School of Law, Palm Beach State College,Florida Institute of Technology (Jensen Beach Campus), Florida International University, Northern New Mexico College, Indian River State College and Thorneloe University. I spent four summers at Chautauqua Institution and have spent time at Cornell Law School. Esalen Institute and Ghost Ranch.
