Home Movies: American Journeys

In this new, original storytelling series from Connecticut Public, "Home Movies: American Journeys," we introduce you to some immigrants to Connecticut — some newcomers, some who have lived here for decades, each with a fascinating story.

Watch Online Here or on CPTV: Tuesdays at 8:57 p.m.
following "Finding Your Roots" and on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

What's YOUR Family Story of Immigration to America?

What is the story of your American Journey? Did your people come to America fleeing persecution or repression? Were they seeking an education, opportunity, prosperity — or perhaps love? Did they arrive centuries or generations ago, or are you among the first in your family to venture a life here in the U.S.?  Connecticut Public invites YOU to join us in creating a Connecticut Family Album that celebrates our state's  rich and diverse heritage.
