Family Collections

Description

These collections have been donated by Lebanese American families. They reflect the multifaceted experience of immigrants spanning from the nineteenth century to the present day; while varied, these collections also highlight the common threads between Lebanese immigrants throughout the decades.

Family collections contain digital reproductions of objects, documents, and photographs reflecting the history of individual families and their experiences in the Lebanese diaspora. Materials in family collections include:  photographs, oral histories, letters, personal documents, videos, audio recordings, photographed objects, and more. 

Each family retains the original, physical object and full copyright over their use. 

The Khayrallah Center is actively seeking new family collections from across the United States and the world. If you have material from your own experiences or family history please consider sharing your story. If you would like to learn more about establishing a family collection, please contact us.
