About this collection

The Family Story Digital Scrapbooks Collection contains short videos in which participants use photos, documents, artifacts and their own voice tell a story about their family. The goal of the project is to place the creation of museum content directly in the hands of Arab Americans in order to capture the diversity of the Arab American experience.

 

The Family Story Digital Scrapbooks project is ongoing and we are always interested in new participants. To learn how to add your own story to the collection, stop in to the Russell J. Ebeid Library at the front of the Arab American National Museum or give us a call at (313)624-0223. You can also learn more about the project online at the link below:
