Share Your Story

As result of the Genocide in 1915, Armenians lost their historical homeland – Western Armenia


Many people lost their relatives, friends, left their ancestral homes and were forcibly exiled. On their way, family members were losing each other. Armenian children of the same family or dynasty appeared in different countries, became citizens, and different governments spelled their surnames in different ways.


“Share your story” is a separate section operating on On this platform, every Armenian, irrespective of location,

can tell the story of an ancestor to the visitors of the site.


After filling in all the required fields, i.e. the narrator’s and the survivor’s data and the period of time, the story is uploaded to the website and then made available to all visitors. Besides their inherited family names, people can also mention the modified forms that existed in the past or may exist today. This is a unique database that will enable Armenians around the world to find their family and friends.
