Sharing your own personal migration history can help us to tell a really big story - the story of Europe and the people who live here. We invite you to share your story - through objects like pictures, letters, postcards or recipes - with Europeana Migration at one of our collection days or by visiting our website.

Flash notice

We invite you to contribute stories relating to European migration in your family history.

These objects are important parts of your heritage and recording and digitising them is easier than you might think. Once it’s done, they will become part of the Europeana Migration Collection.
