Immigrants' Stories
Immigrant Stories helps immigrants, refugees, and their family members create digital stories: brief videos with images, text, and audio about a personal experience. Use this website and create a digital story: a 3-5 minute video made from your own photos, text, and audio. Immigrant Stories is a research and archiving project run by the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) at the University of Minnesota.

The New Americans
