Write Your History!

Visit the Museum’s Community Diary Series page to start writing down your history. There, you’ll find several question & answer prompts to answer yourself, or you can print them out and ask your family members to answer. How much history can you help us to collect?

How much do you want future generations to know about our daily lives?

The more participants in these surveys, the clearer our historical survey will be when future researchers are looking back at the 20th Century. Thanks for your help!
