"What a dream that someone who worked in darkness half of his life
could now have a position where he could work out in the sunshine."
Helen Barreras, Our American Family: The Barreras

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.
