Introduction: Share and discover family stories
As you've seen on AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES, the essence of family history is the indvidual story. Here, we've provided a forum in which you can share your own family's stories, whether they've been passed down over generations or you've collected them yourself as part of an oral history project. We hope you'll choose to share your favorites with other visitors to the site.
