Share Your Story

Everyone has a story about family and ancestors.  We invite you to share your brief story with us online. All stories will be collected and archived.  A selection of stories will be chosen for publication on this website. 

Not sure what to share? Here are some ideas:

  • Where are your ancestors from?
  • Describe a tradition from your family heritage. 
  • When and why did your family come to New York? 
Would you like to join our mailing list and receive notifications about upcoming tours and events at the Empire State Plaza and Capitol?
By submitting your story, you agree that your story may be published online and added to the exhibit archive. For more information, email [email protected]
