What do you know about your family’s Armenian Genocide story?

If your family came from historic Armenia:

  • Do you know where your family came from?
  • What do you know about their lives?
  • What was the family business?
  • What kind of house did they live in?
  • Did they go to school?
  • Was the family Armenian Apostolic, Catholic, or Protestant?
  • Do you know anything about family members that died in the Armenian Genocide?
  • If members of the family survived the deportation marches, do you know what happened to them along the way?
  • To what countries did the family emigrate?
  • How did members of the family earn a living and survive in their new homelands?
  • Do you speak Armenian?
  • What do you know about the history of the Armenians before the Armenian Genocide?

These are just some of the questions for which I am seeking answers. As I learn about the strength, determination, resourcefulness, faith, and work ethic my family displayed as they experienced the Armenian Genocide and its aftermath, I am awed.
