Does Your Family Qualify?

Our American Family seeks to document our American family heritage, one family at a time, and inspire viewers to capture their own family stories - before those voices are gone.  We are seeking families to add to the Our American Family tapestry.  We encourage you to review our documentary qualification requirements and if your family qualifies, to submit an online application.
